The Journal

Lovelies --

We have some wonderful submissions and your delightful trimulierate of talented women are hard at work assembling the disparate threads of this endeavour into a coherent whole. How to wrangle such individualistic works into a comprehensive unity? That remains to be seen. But you will doubtless be delighted by the outcome because there's no way all this fantastic inspiration could disappoint. And no, it's not a bit like this ;-)
