A Place of Interest For Readers and Writers

Linda Pharaoh Carlson

Linda Pharaoh Carlson is a poet and owner/moderator of The WordSmith website. Linda is masterful at adding the perfect graphics and music to the stories and poems featured. She adds magic to a poem or story that writers submit to her. Take a look and you'll see what I mean.

Recently, she has updated the website. Read about what she has been doing in the newsletter. Then go to the Home Page to see the new look. It's really fabulous. One of my favorite spots is the Book  of Favorites that has turning pages where a visitor can click on a page and read the poem or story featured. And yes, some of my work is included there. Maybe I'm a bit prejudiced but I think it's a pretty neat idea and love the stories and poems Linda selected to be featured.

With another click, you can go to Kathe Campbell's author page that Linda has put together to feature this Montana mountain author. Kathe has been spotlighted in my blog more than once. Linda intends to create author pages for others in the near future.

You'll find the Featured Story and Poem near the top of the Home Page, just one more click to read each one. Farther down the page click on Submission Guidelines, then go on to read news of some of the WordSmith authors.

Near the top left, you'll see a few lines that offer the option of signing up for an account to take  full advantage of all The WordSmith has to offer, along with the Writers Forum that Linda also hosts. This is not mandatory, only for those who want to participate fully in all these websites have to offer. Linda has a complete explanation as to why she offers this choice.

Spend some time at The WordSmith, bookmark it, and return to read more of the entertaining stories and poems Linda Pharaoh Carlson offers both readers and writers. If you like it, pass it on to others.

  1. That is so very nice of you, Nancy. I truly appreciate all you do for The WordSmith. It is what it is, because of wonderful people like you. Writers who enjoy what they do and sharing what they know with the world. And I feel privileged to be able to work with you. Thank you.

    With Warm Regards, Linda
