This just in from Inscriptions' (and the New York Times Online's) Jade Walker. Alas, I don't have time to go in and fix all the web-links, but if you go to you'll find all the links in place. There should be lots of good stuff in the list to go and look at, which is why I'm sticking up the whole thing and not just blinking bemusedly and mumbling something about it being an honour just to be nominated.

Those of you who seriously want to be writers could do much worse than pay your $5 and subscribe to online Inscriptions, filled with lots of good information not to mention interviews and things...

You've heard of the Oscars, the Emmys, the Pulitzers and the Webbys.
Well, for the second year in a row, Inscriptions Magazine is
sponsoring the 2001 Engraver Awards
( to honor the
achievements of writers, editors and publishers working online and in
print. The nominations have been culled into a ballot, and the
winners will now be chosen by "The Academy" of 5,000+ Inscriptions

Congratulations! You received a nomination. Winners will be announced
online in the Feb. 18 issue. Each winner will receive a year's
subscription to Inscriptions, with credit on our Supportive Scribes
page; a 2001 Inscriptions Engraver Award graphic for Web sites, a
2001 Inscriptions Engraver Award coffee mug and four weeks of free
advertising in the Inscriptions e-zine or Web site.
