    Righteously awed.
    Thank you, thank you all for everything you brought tonight: your open hearts, your badassedness, your stories, your names. Liberation Spring springs.

      We brainstormed a bounty of full-frontal tastiness last week. So much possibility waiting to be further mined for treasure:

      Vulvaverses—title of zine

      —Concept ripe for illustration/animation:
      ~There’s a music festival in George, Washington.
      ~GW was taller than Lincoln.
      ~I saw Sasquatch in GW

    I would like to share this call for submissions from Adbusters.

    “The solution to the existential crisis of climate change is a multifaceted, metamimetic, hydra-like approach that hacks into the guts of the capitalist algorithm and reboots it. The Year of Living Dangerously Part 1 (our ‘Spooky’ issue) hits newsstands worldwide February 23 . . . now Part 2 of this series needs some righteous inspiration from all you artists writers, poets, photographers, illustrators and intellectuals out there. Send us something . . . an epiphany, a meditation, a confession . . . a dream, a vision, a jab, an insight . . . a poignant photograph . . . a political cartoon (not like The New Yorker!) . . . an idea with the power to rock Planet Inc. to its core . . .
    . . . or maybe just send us a beautifully written few paragraphs straight from your heart!”

    Send to editor@adbusters.org before February 29… published writings will be paid 10 ~ 50c/word.

    Info on the Womxn’s Herstory Month project for the South Seattle Emerald:

    31 womxn writing about 31 Revolutionary Womxn that we tend not to learn about! Info below. Please let me know if you have any ideas or questions and I would love for you to be involved!

    There is a google doc where you can list the woman you will be writing about and pick the day of the month you would like her to be featured. The submissions will be available for everyone in the group to view. We request they are submitted to the google doc 1 week before the date you have chosen.

    A few key points:
    – We hope to use this as an opportunity to share about the revolutionary women in history, or today, whose stories may not be well known and should be. Consider those whose voices have not been heard throughout history, and those who continue to go unheard– we want to especially raise up stories of women of color and queer and trans voices, let’s challenge ourselves to break outside the list of usual suspects we’ve heard about all our lives (maybe let’s not have more than 15 days of white ladies? and also let’s stay away from our family members because letsbehonest we could all write amazing posts about our moms but lets wait until Mother’s day for that one!)
    – These stories will be posted each day in the South Seattle Emerald for the month of March!
    – In your submission please address the 5 W’s?- who, what, where, when, why and maybe adding ‘why this person is inspiring to you personally / to women today’ or ‘why her impact matters’ so much. Please keep this under 500 words.
    – These can be answered in whatever format you want! Poetry, visual arts, essay style, using humor…whatever resonates with you, make it personal!
    – We thought it would be fun to include a “call to action” or “tiny revolutions” at the end of each piece. Calling on women to consider thinking outside their comfort zone, trying something they never considered, in the spirit of the woman they just read about.
    – and MOST IMPORTANTLY, at the end of the month we will have a party and invite women to come and share stories of the women who have inspired them!

    If you are interested I will invite you to the google doc and facebook group and get on our merry way!
