Weekly Wrap-Up – 9.28.14

Hi everyone, I’m back again with more great stuff we posted this week and a couple reminders.

We are indeed open for submissions for our March issue! You can read all the details on the submissions page.

Additionally, I’ll be closing the applications for our volunteer positions later this week, so if you’ve thought about helping out (proofreaders for a couple special projects still needed!!!) then now is the time to do it! You can find all the details here.

What else is going on? Well, this is what we posted during the week; you should definitely go back and get caught up:

Tammy Garrison started off our week with a powerful, personal essay, “A Personal Encounter With Batman -or- The Long Roundabout Story of How Comics are Important for Everyone.”

Tara Lindsey took us on a lovely “A Poetic Pilgrimmage: Part 1” and I look forward to sharing part two with you all next month!

In “Peripheral Narrators: Experimenting with the Narrative Perspective in YA WritingKC Maguire explores a narrative structure I hadn’t considered before. I got a lot out of this one.

It was my birthday on Thursday, btw, and I made a special call for support as I start prepping print editions of LSQ! Belated gifts still appreciated. 🙂

We also had some writerly help from Sandra Wickham who gave us “Three Basic Tips for New Writers” that even those of us who’ve been writing a while may have missed.

And Kim Killian gave us a charming piece, “I want a boy who will build me a bookshelf” and I have to agree with her. Bookshelves rule.

So that’s it for last week. Check back every day for great new reads.
