It's been a slow start to WGC Mighty Pens. To be candid, I wasn't prepared to start this project as soon as I did but I really couldn't turn down the offer of a free MU so I had to accept. Now I can prioritize this project as it should and move ahead with our first initiative.
On the WGC Digest...
The first effort of the MU to foster a culture of quality journalism in eRep for eCanadians is the WGC (Writers' Guild of Canada) Digest. The WGC Digest is a list of the newspapers that have been recommended by MU members or respected advisors as being of WGC quality. A recommendation is included as a show of respect to the publisher and as a courtesy to would-be readers.
The WGC Mighty Pens will be the curator of the WGC Digest and invite you to enjoy the content which can be found below.
The digest is a living document and additions will occur on a continuous basis as appropriate content is identified.
On WGC Mighty Pens' respected advisors...
In trying to keep the MU aligned with the spirit of the original WGC, I have reached out to the legacy members looking for their input; Jacobi, Alias Vision, Acacia Mason, Plugson, Chucky Norris and Rigour6. I am counting on these people to keep the MU true to the spirit of WGC.
