Our website requires that you do two different things to get notified of classes, writing contests, and other special events, and to receive notifications of new blog posts. First, to get notified of classes and other special events, subscribe to The Mill. At the bottom right corner of any page of the website, you'll find a Subscribe field to type in your email address. Once you've typed the address in, simply click the Subscribe button, and you'll be on our mailing list for news of our classes, writing contests, and other events.
Filling out the Subscribe field and clicking Subscribe, however, won't get you notifications of new blog posts. To get those, go to any blog post, say this one (or click the News & Events tab at the top, and click any post), and look in the upper right corner for a button named Log in/Sign up. Click it and follow the instructions to sign up. Once completed, you'll receive notifications of new blog posts. Thereafter, you'll also be able to leave a comment on a particular post. Simply click Log in at the upper right corner, fill in your email and password, scroll to the bottom of the post, and you'll see space to leave your comment.
Want to make a donation to The Mill? It's simple. You'll find a Donate button in the upper right corner on the Mill's pages. Click it, and you'll be taken to a page where you can make a PayPal donation. Suggested levels can be found on our Friends of the Mill page, though any amount, of course, is acceptable. You may also send a check (made out to The Mill: A Place for Writers) to The Mill: A Place for Writers, PO Box 861, Appleton, WI 54912.
