Check out the new issue of Make/shift!!!

Yay -- I just got the second issue of Make/shift, the new feminist magazine where I'm the reviews editor (reviews editor for books and other printed matter for this issue, editor for all reviews starting with the next issue!) -- so make sure to read those reviews, and tell me what you think... I also have a regular column (called -- what else? -- Nobody Passes), as do Nomy Lamm, Randa Jarrar and Erin Aubry Kaplan... There's tons more brilliance, including an interview with INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence, a conversation about trans documentaries, an article about experimental filmmaker Su Friedrich, fiction by Miriam Gurba and more more more!

Oh -- did I mention that the magazine is printed on 100 percent postconsumer wastepaper with soy-based ink -- as all print publications should be, right?

How the hell are they going to keep an independent and innovative feminist magazine in print in this day and age of endless media consolidation? Well, if you have the means to support, you can always subscribe...

Okay, that's all for my plug -- now I better go read the thing!

Oh, but wait -- if you're in the Bay Area or LA (and like to fill in your calendar early), there are two upcoming launch parties:
