• Marguerite Quantaine (Essay)
• Beverley Karalus (Fiction)

and, introducing a new column from, a Butch in a Modern World.

What a great line up for our first issue. And what’s more…this stunning looking, downloadable e-zine will be completely FREE! Yes, you read right. That’s because all our amazing contributors have given their time, talent, and energy to this project, for free.

As we did with our Poetry Salon, the magazine will be available (really soon) through the web site, and through ISSUU.com. So stop in here regularly for updates on the release date, or better yet, sign up for an email update (through Feedburner) and be the first to know.

All the best,
