Archive for July, 2008
Hello interested webzine readers – our Synchronized Chaos site should be up very soon. Our webdesigner, Tabitha Smith (www.tabithagracesmith.com) is currently customizing the site. Please comment and let me know if any of you are interested in assisting with updating the website once it goes up and I will have you added as a site admin.
Such a great variety of submissions – looking forward to the July/August issue! We’ve received rhymed/metered and free verse poetry, prose, and visual art, and I’ve written up an interview with someone from the Virunga Artisans, a fair trade art/household goods business cooperative in central Africa. This has become truly an international project, as our first round of artists hail from every continent except Antarctica and Australia (so far.)
Very grateful for and humbled by the time and effort people have put into crafting quality submissions for Synchronized Chaos, and by contributors’ willingness to share the interesting, unique stories behind their work. I encourage any literary agent or publishing house editor who may come across this magazine to consider the artists here for publication. Many of our contributors have larger works completed or in progress for which they seek representation or publication, and I can certainly vouch for their talent and dedication.
As always, the most valuable and rewarding aspect of helping put Synchronized Chaos together has been developing relationships with highly talented and creative people. It is a privilege to have the chance to meet and talk with each of the contributors and I wish them well in their further artistic and other pursuits.
Every field of work or study can be pursued with creativity and ingenuity, whether the work is traditionally considered ‘art’ or not – and I hope perusing the other works in this magazine will provide additional inspiration and support for the creative endeavors of our contributors and readers.
A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing. — William Dobell
Thank you again for helping in the creation of Synchronized Chaos, which has become a living thing in itself through the process of combining our joint efforts.
