pdwr is offering a guest article page for digital wine communicators

When I created purely domestic wine report last year, one of the content areas I introduced was a guest column, written as a general interest piece by experts I invited to write about a specific subject. Published original works were submitted by Laura Conway, discussing Camp Schramsberg, Master Cellar Builder John Seitz, talking about cellar design considerations, VinTank’s Paul Mabray, explaining Social Connect, and Shannon Kuleto, introducing the Vine Trail Coalition. There was not a guest article in either of the last two issues and I realize I need to create a more efficient method to make sure that happens consistently.  I decided that offering wider access to this page would be worth exploring. 

Opening the page to digital wine communicators

Some have suggested the established core of online writers is as good as we can expect it to get. To accept that is to believe there is no reason, or hope for others to even try. I don’t agree. As an independent critic and publisher, I think it is still important for those who are in position to do so, to offer encouragement to, if not nurture those who wish to pursue having their writing published. Therefore, beginning with the next issue of purely domestic wine report, I will initiate a trial period where digital writers may submit original, unpublished work to be considered for inclusion as a guest article in the online and print editions. More details may be found here.
