blueprintreview: the identity issue of blueprintreview is now halfway online, and shaped out both philosophical and colorful. first feedback: "Issue 26 is going live by stages. And it's quirky, endlessly allusive and beautiful, as always." - Jean Morris. "Really a diverse and surprising range of perspectives on the theme" - Rose Hunter. also up now: the call for #27, which is a collaborative issue, theme: "Synergetic Transformations".
NaSmaStoMo: there is a new web writing project coming up in January 2011: National Small Stone Month, initiated by Fiona Robyn. the challenge: write a small stone - a polished moment of paying proper attention - every day during the month of January. more in Daily s-Press: NaSmaStoMo - National Small Stone Month.
the first online lit zines: started with the re/visit/cycle/turn blueprint issue, and now updated through a facebook thread: a trip to the beginnings of the internet, and to the first online literary magazines. without the web, none of the here mentioned projects would exist.
