Boating Writers International, a nonprofit professional organization, created a new marine writers directory at its Web site at www.BWI.org.
“We created the directory as a free service to connect our members with anyone needing the help of a professional marine journalist,” said BWI President Kim Kavin in a statement. “Anyone who is seeking a writer, editor, photographer or videographer can search our database by name, state, subject specialty and more.”More than 100 of BWI’s 500-plus members have opted to upload their information into the new database since it went online for members-only use. The search function has since been tested several times to ensure reliability, and some BWI members have already reported making new contacts from their listings.To access the database, go to www.bwi.org and click on “Writer’s Directory” in the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the page.
BWI is a non-profit professional organization consisting of writers, editors, publishers, broadcasters, photographers, public relations specialists and others in the communications profession associated with the recreational boating industry.
