Welcome to WLW Network, LLC – a publication, personal development, and education company owned and operated by Mysti Linne in Arizona. The fledgling company owner has over two decades of experience in writing, editing, and publishing captivating true stories of people overcoming adversity. As a child abuse and domestic violence survivor, Mysti recognizes the need to help people heal through writing and sharing their stories of desperation, anguish, and tragedy. Each author doesn’t just share the anguish; they dig deep to convey strength, perseverance, and determination in a story of triumph.
Memoirs & Autobiographies
Memoirs cover one particular aspect of a writer’s life, and autobiographies cover an entire life. For most writers, a memoir is sufficient to share a captivating story. Some people need to stretch beyond a small portion of life and share details chronologically. We accept both types of submissions for consideration of publication.
Anthologies are compilations of numerous stories by a variety of writers. The shorter pieces begin with a problem to overcome, contains elements of conflict, and resolves. These stories are best told in the present tense, as though the readers are experiencing the event themselves. We are excited to begin announcing anthology titles accepting submissions in August 2017.
Personal Development & Education
WLW Network’s mission includes enhancing the lives of those impacted by trauma, abuse, and complex grief. Non-fiction books geared towards healing, accepting and moving beyond difficult experiences, and those aimed at teaching valuable life skills in a simple-to-execute manner are welcomed. For many survivors of abuse, neglect, and complex grief, managing life tasks such as budgeting, scheduling, and caring for themselves becomes overwhelming.grf

“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi

How does this work?
A writer pens a memoir about bullying in her younger years and the impact it made as she aged. Now a parent herself, she elects to donate a portion of her proceeds to the school her children attend. This school is a nonprofit meeting the requirements for donation and holds a warm place in her heart for providing a safe, bully-free environment where her children are growing without impediment she experienced.
