We received great feedback from our 2nd edition and some great ideas for articles by prospective authors. Please see the RPC e-Journal Archive for Real Property E-Journal: Issue 1 for our areas of interest and writing requirements at. Our members have a diverse background of experiences and we encourage you to forward your ideas to us for possible article topics.
Our next edition’s deadline for articles is May 1, 2013.
Please feel free to forward this e-Journal to anyone you believe would benefit from its contents.
We apologize if your article did not make this edition. There is much effort that goes back and forth between us and the authors for content development and proper grammar. Although we leave the substantive content to the authors to express their own opinions, there is a certain degree of proper grammar and readability that must be adhered to. Neither Kurt nor I will write anyone’s article for them, we leave that to the author. We do read the articles and, when necessary, suggest how the author needs to make edits for the article be a true professionally written paper.
Thank you for your continued support of the e-Journal and we hope you enjoy the articles contained herein.
