 In addition to writing and illustrating, I edit. My latest editorial project, The Gunpowder Review, is finally in-hand. This new literary magazine (with a Maryland focus) contains the work of 60 women. I’m delighted that the contributors are from different walks of life and different backgrounds. Some of these women have had dozens (perhaps even hundreds) of poems published. For some of these writers and artists, the poem or story or drawing in The Gunpowder Review is their first published work.

For me, there is a joy in bringing the creative work of others to readers. It’s different than seeing one’s own work in print (though I do have a poem in the magazine), but no less wonderful. Congratulations to the women in The Gunpowder Review 2009. Good job! And I hope many of you (and maybe a few of you readers) will submit work in 2010 when the magazine opens for submissions on March 1.

The Gunpowder Review is a project sponsored by the Gunpowder Pen Women. Information on their programs and updates on the magazine can be found at: http://gunpowderpenwomen.wordpress.com
