From the The WIN Informer guidelines:

The WIN INFORMER is the official publication of Writers Information Network, The Professional Association for Christian Writers, organized in 1983 to provide a much needed link for professional writers, editors, publicists, and others trying to keep in touch with the expanding and changing climate of the Christian publishing industry.

 THE PURPOSE OF OUR MAGAZINE:  [1] to further professional development in writing and marketing skills of Christian writers, [2] to provide a meeting ground of encouragement/fellowship for persons engaged in writing and speaking,  [3] to furnish writers with up-to-date information on religious book and magazine/periodical publishers,  [4] to keep writers abreast of industry news and trends, and [5] to share quality writing helps, tips, connections, and how-to advice.


UP-TO-DATE MARKET INFORMATION: Anything that is news-worthy that will tell our writers what today's religious editors seek. 

INDUSTRY NEWS AND TRENDS: If you learn a hot tip, spot a trend or see an announcement made in the religious periodicals you read, pass it on.  If you can quote editors/publishers, agents or other industry insiders, all the better.

WRITING HELPS, CONNECTIONS, HOW-TO ADVICE and CHALLENGING ARTICLES: We will share short, pithy ideas of what is working for you, or the best suggestions that you've picked up at conferences.  We like practical advice writers can put to work to advance their freelance writing/  speaking career.  We also consider devotional/inspirational material and quotes with "take-away value" from successful Christian authors.

WRITERS CLUBS/ FELLOWSHIP GROUPS/ AND CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENTS: We are happy to pass along news of events of interest to Christian writers and speakers.  Send a press release.  Our publication is read in all 50 states and 12 foreign countries.

BOOK REVIEWS: Books of special writing/speaking interest; books by any of our WIN members; best-selling books that show what is happening or should be important in our world; books by authors that writers and speakers should be reading for broader exposure to current trends and issues.
