Every week, I spelunk into the Writer’s Digest archives to find the wisest, funniest, or downright strangest moments from our 92 years of publication.
This week, here’s an array of vintage writer cartoons/writer comics from 1952 (which was a delightfully writer-joke–heavy year for the magazine).
Also! we dipped a hand randomly into the magic WD swag hat, and a name emerged—Lina Moder. Lina, I’ll email you shortly so you can choose a title from the list of free books on hand. Every week, to get in on the action and make yourself eligible to win a free book from the swag stacks, all you have to do is leave a comment.
(Writer’s Digest, 1952)
