"Passion. Vision. Daring. Humour. Any alone will be intriguing--but to have them all is to be sublime."
That is the mandate of the new journal for the Women's League of Ale Drinkers, for which I am editor. We seek only work that meets these criteria, the output of creative women who may feel that their vision and passion has been overlooked elsewhere, that their daring has brought only disapproving stares, that their humour has met with stony silence. We delight in work that crosses traditional genres. We do not ask for your credentials, awards or publications. We ask for your heartfelt work.
The inaugural issue will be out for Halloween. The full colour PDF format will be a showcase of talented women.
