Deadline for Diplomacy World #152 Coming Up – January 1, 2021

The deadline for the next issue of Diplomacy World is only 32 days away: January 1, 2021.

Be sure to get your articles, letters, requests, ideas, flyers, and anything else to me by then.

If you’re already working on something, feel free to let me know so I can start planning for where to put it in the layout.

Diplomacy World #151 didn’t have the kind of coverage of tournaments and virtual events I hoped for.  Maybe you can help ensure #152 makes up for that?

The reason for starting this Mailchimp list is as follows:

1. Enabling direct contact with DW readers where they can add or drop themselves with ease.

2. My old email mailing list was a mess of 8 groups that I had to mail BCC two per day or I get tagged as spam by Yahoo and I can’t use Outlook for a day with that account. I don’t send to those lists any longer, so if that was the only place you were getting notices, you’re not getting anything now.

3. The oldest and most consistent method of communication is the old Yahoo group. Those groups are being shut down and are effectively useless now.

Diplomacy World Deadline is Upon Us

The deadline for the next issue of Diplomacy World is January 1, and I’m not seeing much material make it into my Inbox. If you’ve never written for Diplomacy World, now is the time. You don’t need to be a master player to write an article. You can talk about your experiences, describe a recent face-to-face tournament or club activity, promote an upcoming one, use your mistakes to educate new players. History, variants, humor, strategy, tactics…there’s so many paths your writing could take. Email your material to dougray30@yahoo.com
