What Is WordShack

WordShack is owned and operated as a multi-national partnership. WordShack Publishing is a home for the world's amateur authors; a place to showcase their work, and to be discovered. Two individuals are directly responsible for all aspects of the site. They are Ben Bernstein of London, England and Lynda Blankenship of Massillon, Ohio in the United States. Each brings to the project years of experience and an unflinching desire to help writers find their audience. Both Ben and Lynda have spent much of their work lives surrounded by numbers, but both love words. This is exemplified by the corporate motto they chose for WordShack: "Because Words Are Everything."

Our Mission Statement

WordShack Publishing will entertain, inform and educate readers through the creation and maintenance of a high quality, international website. We will launch the careers of previously unpublished writers by introducing their work to the general public and to literary agencies. WordShack Publishing seeks to be the author's first step to greatness.
