Call for Submissions : 'Dear Sister' and 'Occupied Bodies'

Hey all. Many posts to come. First, here are some opportunities for Lexington and KY voices to be heard.

Check this link for information about submitting your letters and stories of violence and more importantly how you have overcome them. They are also looking for stories specifically from people of color, so that is great. I love when people are intentional about diversity.

Another publication, 'Occupied Bodies' is looking for personal stories of perception from people of color. Very interesting.

I would encourage anyone that wants to submit but is afraid that they won't get in to do it anyway. I responded to an ad in Skirt! magazine a month ago and they interviewed me and put me in the July issue. Photo by Kelli Patrick. Get out Lexington.

Comic Con Meets the Westboro Baptist Church and Fred Phelps.

Everybody should know about this, especially Kentuckians. See, great things are happening around the country. Let's get out and show people that Kentucky is great too! As the Lexingtonian Burley says, "Don't f***- with nerds."

The article about the protest that Comic Con is holding in response to Fred Phelps.
