        July 13 2011 Guest Backgrounder

1.  Guest:    J. Michael Collins                       Call-in Time:  5:30 p.m.

Guest summary: J. Michael is a photographer and overall friend and a huge supporter of the literary community. He publishes the online magazine, coined as the literary community for authors, poets, playwrights, journalist and others who write.



SSW is an online magazine that’s designed around the needs of the literary community.

We started as a local newsletter (Scribblers, Screamers and other Wordslingers) and after only five months of publishing we realized that we needed a broader platform in order to better serve this community.

We are preparing many new features that we hope will benefit writers from every genre.

In the meantime, if you would like to view past issues of the newsletter in PDF form you can go to

Our goal is to make SSW Magazine the destination for writers when they need the latest news and information relative to their needs.

Additionally, SSW will be a community with the goal of sharing experiences and ideas with others. We urge you to participate by being a regular contributor and reader on this new site.

The formal title is Scribblers, Screamers and other Wordslingers. (Scribblers write, while Screamers recite, they’re all Wordslingers, you know, they’re literary types.)

The title is a parody on those who write, speak and visually communicate through artistic means by use of any medium, be it books, songs, poetry, photography, film, stage and more.

Though the title is meant to provoke humor the publication is seriously dedicated to keeping the literary community informed. It also provides information to the broader community about upcoming events, new artist, product reviews and other valuable information about the literary and artist communities.

We also want to connect new and established authors and artist with others in the community to promote, sell and/or exchange products, services, ideas and information.

We know that several credible options already exist for readers seeking information about what’s going on in the literary community and SSW simply wants to be one more option that the consumer will have.
