Thank you, thank you – for all the enthusiastic responses on
the introduction of the FEATURING team! I know for a fact
that the team members are walking on clouds right now!
On one of the forums I visited last week was some misunderstanding
and questions about the team so I will clarify it here too: the team
working for the magazine is not a ‘usual design team’.
FEATURING will not be filled with art pieces from them (although
there might pop up some art of the members in one of the issues)
The team will brainstorm, collect ideas, deliberate about submissions
and write all kind of articles etc. – all the things that a magazine team
is supposed to do.
But you know what? There might be a chance that YOUR work gets published
in one of the issues, because we are open to receive all kinds of artwork.
We especially seek artwork for our theme gallery.
The theme gallery will be a permanent part of the magazine where artwork
from our readers will be highlighted. Each issue’s gallery will have a unique
theme. The theme is meant to be a jumping-off point. We encourage you to
interpret it in your own way. We’d like to publish artwork (lay-outs, journal
pages, photos, paintings etc.) and texts/poetry* that shows the theme from
* See that – you haiku writers???
For our first issue, the theme is: Applause
Find all the info on the website under ‘Submissions‘
I’m excited that my vision is actually coming together in reality
and that you are right there with me, showing your interest in
the magazine and encouraging me.
OK, enough shouting about FEATURING… on to the regular ‘Friday stuff’
