New Journal!

I'm really pleased to announce that the Women's League of Ale Drinkers has decided to start a journal to share with the world the fabulous women who support the League.  You can see the details over at the League's site, but here's a precis:

And that is the mandate of the new journal for the Women's League of Ale Drinkers, for which Vicky will serve as editor. We seek only work that meets these criteria, the output of creative women who may feel that their vision and passion has been overlooked elsewhere, that their daring has brought only disapproving stares, that their humour has met with stony silence. We delight in work that crosses traditional genres.

We do not ask for your credentials, awards or publications. We ask for your heartfelt work -- writing in RTF files, art in JPGs, music and video via links. We ask that you tell us why the piece embodies your reason to live, to breathe -- what the work means to you, even why you think it may not have received an audience before...


 Read the rest over at the League, where you can also enjoy a celebration of the fabulous Stephanie Johnson, featuring her fabulous designs for Smoking Ants Records.

I have some good news to pass along but I will wait until I have signed the contract. Of course, I was already celebrating because I got the Fulbright application done (whew!). Of course it will be months before I know anything, but it's in and I gave it my best shot. That's all you can do, eh?

I like this new direction for WLoADed- so all you fabulous women out there, give us some love and send in your creative efforts!

And thanks for the props, Kate- you've been MY inspiration many times!

Awww - thanks! There's a lot of mutual inspiration: I love seeing your designs that make manifest something weird we were talking about :-D

And thanks again for the elegant portrait of Kit. Need it today!

Break a paradigm, Kate!

But I must abuse male privilege and demand the use of Websterian "humor" in the journal. Humour is suspiciously...Canadian...we'll be watching you bibulous carousers...

K. A. Laity said...

You're not dissing Canadians? A lot my friends are Canadian! And Stephanie has a lot of Quebecois relatives. Who knows how many Canadians Vicky knows? She could *be* Canadian for all I know.

Todd Mason said...

Exactly. I'll be counting "zeds".

K. A. Laity said...

What?! Suggesting we'll be boring?! The very idea! I will say good day to you, sir. Good day, sir.

Tee hee hee.

See, if I was producing Zees, I'd be bidding you good night, madam, beforehand. But the price of liberty from unnecessary Us is eternal vigilance (really should be vigilanse)...
