C is for... CapeWomenOnline



C is for... CapeWomenOnline magazine


The new issue for Spring 2011 should be available any day now... but since I'm participating in this blogfest for the month, I'm not sure how I'm going to announce it here :-(

I guess I'll have to incorporate it into that letter of the day ;-)

I joined CapeWomenOnline magazine as the Editor starting with the Summer 2009 issue, when a new publisher took over the reigns. Since that first issue, we've evolved and grown into something that hopefully reaches out to readers and Connects. We strive to bring our Community Closer together, highlighting the Creative and Caring women who live and work on Cape Cod.

By editing other writers' works, my own writing has grown as well. We've had our fits and starts on the business side and in trying to hire an advertising director (don't even get me going on that one) but the stories, articles, and writing just keep getting stronger.

Have you Checked out the magazine? If any of you writers have Cape Cod Connections, feel free to Check out our submission guidelines and send me an email. We're always looking for new voices and stories!



P.S. (not C) Did anyone else read Austin James' B post, B standing for Big Brother? Thoughtful, troubling and a bit rabble rousing all at the same time... click here to go back to his B word. Or follow his blog for more of his insights. Do E-Books make it easier for the government to track what people are reading? Should librarians cooperate with the Patriot Act?

Another P.S. ORDINARY ANGELS is the new release from India Drummond, out today from Lyrical Press, and it sounds like a really great read! India is also an A to Z participant - check out her website and blog posts at http://www.indiadrummond.com/

  5. I C where you are coming from. I would love to get to Cape Cod one day. I love to travel, but between work and lack of money, I am for the most part trapped in my small part of the world.

  9. Taking the A to Z trail. I will check out your magazine. We lived in Connecticut for a year so I've only been to the Cape once, but I loved it!

  11. Thanks for stopping by Katie. I'm off to check out the magazine now . Maybe you you sneak an announcement in on the sidebar if you can't work it into your post :-)

  12. Congratulations on passing the 100 follower mark.

    Great way to incorporate regular everyday blogging into the Challenge. You've illustrated what I was trying to convince many who did not join in because they didn't think it would fit their regular format. You showed how to do it. Good post!


    Contrary to my usual practice of subscribing to comments, to save time during challenge I will not be doing so during April. If you want to respond to my comment , please email me directly from your email notification for the comment.
    Thanks.

  15. Thanks for all the great comments and attention for our "local" magazine - if anything online can be strictly local in scope ;-)

    Thanks, Deirdra, for the award! I've posted it with a link to your awesome site, and will thank you tomorrow in my post as well ;-) My first award ;-)

  16. I wasn't aware about the government spy stuff, but it looks like ebooks are here to stay.

  17. What a wonderful opportunity! I will stop by the magazine later today and take a read around.

  18. Sounds slightly more glamorous than my village news editing!

    Good to make your acquaintance. Best of luck with the challenge.

    I look forwad to following your progress and writing.

    warm wishes

  19. Ah, Cape Cod! We used to vacation on Lt. Island when I was a kid. Back then my mom's family owned most of the cottages on the island. I bet now it is all condos. *sigh* I have some terrific memories, though!

  20. I graduated from Chatham High School on Cape Cod.
    Great Post!

  21. Congrats! I used to live in Cohasset, quite easy to get to the Cape (from Hull). Nice to meet you!

  22. Thanks for all the great comments - the Spring Issue of the magazine actually went live last night, so I'll need to incorporate that soon ;-)

    We have a current call for submissions of memories from the Cape Cod National Seashore - to celebrate the 50th anniversary of JFK officially making it a National Park. Been to the Cape? Have a memory you'd like to share? Send it in!

  23. It's hard to imagine how the government has all this time to spy. All this spying should take care of the unemployment problem. On the other hand, sounds like you have a fantastic job.

  24. Wonderful to hear of a new magazine, Katie...I will definitely check it out, though probably not right away. It's quite a challenge indeed keeping up with comments and posts this month, isn't it...LOL?
