Looking for Editors to create a card game Ezine/newsletter

Post by Jonas » Fri Mar 21, 2008 1:45 pm

We're pondering the idea of a Card game newsletter or E-zine.

Anyone here have experience creating Newsletters and Ezines?

We'd also need contributers as it would be an ongoing thing, each one talking about card games in general. So each episode might have a different theme, for instance, one might be about the card game "spades" , where there is a main articale about what classic game is, maybe there would be a strategy section each time, or some interesting history about it. Basically all sorts of casual, interesting in formation about the game.

Next time it might be about Bridge, Canasta or rummy. Each time a different game.

Also who would be interested in a newsletter about say How to play a particular card game, maybe some history on it as well?

So we're looking for Contributors and people to manage the whole project from editing to planning. Kinda like a little news paper :)

Hi Jonas -

I would be glad to write the History of each card game:

Spades, Euchre, Hearts, Bridge, Bid Whist, Pinochle, Cribbage, Canasta, et el.

Each article would be four or five paragraphs.... One Game / Month....

Please advise as to where this content is to be sent...

Cheers

- J

Hi Jonas .

It will be a pleasure to write such a column. The History of these games is most fascinating. And I will try to include a few basic tips with each article.. Let me know when this is ready to launch.

And thanks, "Primal Instincts" for your nice comments.

Cheers

Yes I agree Joe you would be perfect for this. There are a few others I can think of too, that have written their own books.

Yep, but it's a group effort. So anyone that thinks they could help out, that would be great.
