New Online Magazine with a Female Focus

There's a quite a bit of negativity being hurled at women in the public sphere these days, so it seems particularly pertinent that we who identify as females should be writing from a female focused perspective as much as possible. It's important not just to drown out some small bit of middle aged male discussion about our bodies, of course--our messages are invaluable everyday.

That being said, Two Serious Ladies, a new online magazine is now accepting submissions. Its mission is simple; "to promote writing by women." Chicago native Kate Zambreno gave the mag a shout out on her blog. She'll be in town for AWP doing a reading on March 1 at Neo at 10pm (2350 North Clark St.) as well as at the Beauty Bar (1444 W. Chicago Ave.) after party on March 2.
