First I want to thank each and every one of you for last month.We had such a flood of readers that scribd made us a featuredpublicationwhich, in turn, increased our visibility and allowedpeople who had never even heard of Songwriter’s Monthly achance to stumble upon the January issue. Consequently, weended up with over 4,000 readers for last month’s issuealone . . . and we’re nearing the 10,000 mark for overall reads.I have my fingers crossed that now that you’ve found us, youwill realize we’re not the typical music magazine and you willcontinue reading month after month. We strive to get you asclose as possible to each and every artist and writer we cover.We take you away from the gossip and dive deep into whatmakes the artist so very human — sometimes uncoveringaspects that even the artist was not aware of.This month there is a new feature called “First Person.” “FirstPerson” is all about you! If you have a story, an anecdote, orsomething that you think might entertain or enlighten otherfolks, I invite you to send it in to be considered for publication.It does not have to be long (200-300 words is perfect), but itdoes have to be personal, something you experienced yourself.Other than that, if you like what you read here, please, justspread the word, tell people about us. The more readers wehave, the greater the exposure for each person who appearswithin these (virtual) pages. If you’re a writer or an artist, tellyour fans. If you’re a fan, suggest Songwriter’s Monthly to yourfavorite artist (and maybe they’ll owe you one?).Thanks for being involved . . . and thanks for reading!Allena1foster@aol.comFeel free to drop a note, introduce yourself, comment, or justsay hi. I love getting email!
