julia   I am glad to present you the personal web page of Julia Vysotska. She is very talented chess problem composer from Latvia and her site deserve our attention.

   As she wrote herself the main goals of the site are:

    - The review of the software related to chess composition;

    - Publishing of some interesting theoretical and cognitive materials;

    - Paying attention to the women’s activities in composition;

    - Showing and commenting of my own chess problems;

    - Following to the composition-related events.

   As a judge of 2nd Bulgarian Wine Tourney 2011 I was pleased to see her first composed chess problem. I was surprised that a beginner can create such an interesting and good fairy composition. I was pretty sure that Julia will became a very strong chess problem composer very soon.

Good to know about another talented women composer. Chess composers are a minority and a woman composing Fairy problems even rarer! Welcome!!

Thanks to all of you! I have people coming by the links of Emmanuel Manolas too! Today I have added one more post - about the battery play in my problems. But actually I don't have many comments, so I don't really know what is more important to start from. Maybe something more about the software? But what exactly? Diyan, I know you like to improve my comments! :) Please let me know if anything has to be improved in my last post! With the best wishes, Julia.
