I have not been blogging too regularly as of late… there has been SO MUCH going on…
A couple of weeks ago, I met with Cher Bibler, the content editor of “In Other Words: Mérida” (IOW:M) This bi-monthly e-zine (an online literary magazine) offers a publishing opportunity for writers living in and around Mérida
Cher has been a resident of Mérida for several years now and has multiple creative pursuits, including theater and music. She exemplifies the ageless maxim: “Pursuing one creative outlet opens the door to the next.”
In the e-zine’s first post, Cher says:
“Bubbling under the surface of this colonial city in Mexico is a teeming mass of creative minds, some of whom create in the English language. So many, in fact, we thought it a movement that needed to be recorded as it progressed. Our steely tentacles have reached out beyond the city into the surrounding countryside and collected up the best fiction and poetry that we can find, and we encapsulate it for your perusal. And plan to continue to do so, on a roughly bimonthly basis, as long as the tentacles survive. Our reach grows ever larger – is no one safe? We look forward to the adventure, and we hope you do, too.”
In Other Words Mérida accepts submissions in the English or Spanish language. They welcome: fiction, poetry, editorials, essays and interviews from Mérida area writers. The e-zine also showcases photographers and other artists. You can view the May 2012 issue: http://www.inotherwordsmerida.com There you’ll also find the guidelines for having your work included in a future issue.
Some new writers worry that they aren’t “ready” but… you have to be published to get published some more! Cher urges you to send your material.
The team at “In Other Words – Merida” includes:
Katie Brewer – managing editor
Fer de la Cruz – content editor (Spanish language)
Julie Stewart – interviews
