SPOKE(a)n(e) Magazine, Winter 2010

Unfortunately, I am no longer able to keep up with the magazine as a monthly publication. Since I didn't consider shutting it down as an option, I decided to move to a quarterly format.

For our Winter issue, we are featuring Spokane poet Mark Anderson. I have also started a new feature that I am very excited about. I am hoping to move the magazine in a more "by artists, for artists" format. Our After Words section is designed to host a variety of media. Short fiction, editorials, poems, photography and other visual art. I am even looking into using our beloved internet to move the magazine to a new level of visual and audio presentation. But, that's in the future. For now, sit back and enjoy.

Thank you for your continued support!

I stayed pretty much in the background with this one. I had some fantastic help getting everything I needed. A huge "thank you" to Brooke Matson, Alyx Franz and Eric Strate!

House work...

Hey there SPOKE(a)N(e) fans!

I've come to the conclusion that I can't completely eliminate our coverage of First Friday. Yet, I still need to find a way of covering it and experiencing it that works for me. I have a plan for August and while I could tell you what it is, I feel that would be absolutely no fun for me. Stay tuned is all I can say.

Secondly, a huge thanks to Sara Habein for her work on getting an index of all the past issues put together. I've set it up on a page that can be accessed by clicking the Artists Index link on the right. Thanks again, Sara!

SPOKE(a)N(e) Issue #18: July 2010

Salutations good readers!

This month was a blur of starting a new job, and trying to wrestle PageMaker, which is what we use to layout the magazine, to the ground. A quick note about the pictures in the last few issues. From what I can tell, I'm doing everything the same. I've messed around with DPI in Photoshop and it doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere. They just don't look right, and I can't figure out why. By next month, I should have it sorted out.

On to the content...

We tried something different this month.
