Find Aylad's new home here:

  • Make new friends
  • Read exciting new work
  • Learn more about writing
  • Find useful publisher links
Aylad the innovative writers group run by Diana Diaz, is moving home from the Athens site at Geocities to http://www.publication.com. Aylad aims to help fiction writers and poets to get their work seen and to improve their work through discussion. Featured writers on the Aylad website at present are David Writer, who is having the first two chapters of his novel showcased there and Lisa Petty who is having a children's story showcased. Lisa recently won first prize in the Aylad satire poetry competition. Diana tells me that Aylad's has the largest agent and paying market listing on the web.

The Aylad newsgroup works through email, rather than Usenet. Anyone interested in joining this friendly, ever-growing group, can contact Diana Diaz at this email address: [email protected]
