Those who write are the true people of vision.  They see fantastic, exotic places in their minds, and they hear the voices of people who do not speak to anyone else.  Unfortunately, writers always fail to transform the clarity of that vision into their stories.  Words will forever fall short of capturing what a writer sees in the mind's eye; but it is the degree of failure that marks the read from the unread, and the published from the unpublished. 

Holly Lisle's Vision E-magazine is a publication offering help to writers pursuing that difficult transition between personal imagination and written prose.  Vision is also a gateway to the Holly Lisle Forward Motion Writer's Community, where you will find other writers on that same path.  Some may be behind you and others ahead, but the community is filled with people sharing similar goals, and facing the same obstacles. The path to publication is easier to follow when you have guides and friends to help you along the way.

 I hope that you find interesting and useful material in Vision.  I also hope that you will join us in the Forward Motion Writer's Community.
