Freebies

Updated April 9, 2001

 

Most of our subscribers spend several hours in front of their computers, creating new material, editing other people's work or preparing content for publication. With this in mind, we, at Inscriptions, decided to offer you a monthly treat of new wallpaper, designed to inspire and motivate you.

This month's wallpaper was designed by Frank Fradella, editor of Cyber Age Adventures, specifically for Inscriptions.

* "Slaying the Dragon: Stories of Triumph Over Panic and Anxiety Disorders"
If you (or anyone you know) has recovered from an anxiety disorder, Jenna Glatzer wants to hear about it. Stories should include a beginning, middle and end and describe what the anxiety disorder was like, how it affected your life, what methods you tried to get over it, how you got past it and what your life is like now. Glatzer also welcomes stories from caregivers, family and friends of people who've overcome any kind of anxiety disorder. No exact limits on length, but stories should be approximately 800 to 2,000 words. If your story is used, you will get a free copy of the book, and a space for a short bio.
