@mygorgeous Vlog = video blog. Best guess is that the portmanteau was invented by a sado-masochist.
New addition to the qarrtsiluni Links page: a weekly poetry vlog! (And you thought “blog” was an ugly word.) http://www.poetryvlog.com/
We’ve been getting a flood of contact messages from people wanting to be notified about the next theme. It’s nice to feel sought-after.
A minor re-write of the “How to Contribute” page. Are things clear enough yet? Any feedback would be welcome. http://snurl.com/2pd2x
Q. “Water” editor Katherine Durham Oldmixon is one of ten finalists in the New Women’s Voices Chapbook Competition, http://snurl.com/2jarh
Appropriately enough, the title of Katherine’s chapbook is Water Signs. It will be published by Finishing Line Press.
Frequent q. contributor Natalie d’Arbeloff guest-edited the Guardian’s Women pages this week. http://snurl.com/2irho
We’ve now published over 200 contributors. Our deepest gratitude to you all for sharing the vision—and for sitting in the dark with us.
“Water” was our most popular theme to date: 141 submissions, many of them top-notch. Good thing we had a limit of two poems per submission!
We’ll now be publishing two posts almost every day until the end of the Water issue.
