The SWG's January 2017 newsletter has been posted!

We open this month's newsletter with our annual letter from the moderators. We anticipate a 2017 full of work to make the SWG the best group it can be for the members and friends who have loyally supported us for twelve (!) years. In January, we introduce the first of several changes we have planned for this year by changing up our challenges. Check out the News section to read about the new challenges, which will begin on January 15.

For the character biography this month, Oshun writes about the Ithryn Luin or Blue Wizards. This mysterious duo went into the East and was never heard from again. Yet Tolkien speculated about their purpose and their fate throughout his work on the legendarium, and in her characteristically thorough way, Oshun lays out what we know about this pair in her essay about them.

If you're looking for fiction to read, more than twenty stories were added or updated on our archive this month. In case that's not enough, our Around the World and Web section has articles of interests and links to the collections gathered by the Tolkien fandom's multiple December gift swaps. In case you didn't get your fill writing for December events, Around the World and Web also includes upcoming ficswaps and challenges, as well as courses and calls for papers.

It's the final month for the SWG's old challenge system, which has been around for almost twelve years now. Looking for inspiration? Why not try out the Companies, Clubs, and Cliques or Ankle Biters challenges and send our venerable challenge system out with a bang?

As always, many hands and minds go into making our newsletter possible. Thanks this month go to Oshun, Elleth, Rhapsody, and Angelica for creating and compiling our newsletter content.
