Welcome,Readers o WSN Magazine! Welcome to the fne print and our 5th issue!I am eternally grateul to all the companies, web series and websitesthat are responsible or supporting WSN. Te frst WSN magazine waspublished back in April 2011, but I’ve been covering the web seriesindustry since 2009 through our thriving online community at http:// webseriesnetwork.com and can say that much has improved over theyears. Shorter webisodes are still relevant, but more and more contentcreators have transitioned into producing longer web programmingthat rivals television. Quality and production value is through the roo,and web series is no longer oreign to the general public. I am proudto be involved in web series entertainment and our objective via WSNmagazine and webseriesnetwork.com is to continue to celebrate and oster web series, everything it represents and the people that make it all happen.Involved or desire to be involved in web series entertainment? Email me firstname.lastname@example.org.Enjoy the issue and keep making web shows!Rich Mbariket,Publisher/Editor WSN magazine is published quarterly by Rich Mbariket Media.Questions/Advertising: email@example.com
