Hey everybody — sorry this is so late — but just reminding you all that there's a lit mag meeting tomorrow afternoon about the coffee shop (that's this friday!). It should be in Mrs. Womack's room, as usual, but there's always the chance slight chance that might change. If so, we would probably have it in the library or something, and will stick a sign on the door.
It should only last until four at the latest (probably not even that long). We just want to put a few last things together about the coffee shop (performers, who can help set up, stuff like that).
Oh, to anyone in cultural club: I know there's a meeting for that tomorrow, too, so if you can, try to show up to the lit mag meeting for at least a few minutes?
Hope to see some people there!
Oh! And promote it! Tell your friends to come — free fooooood :D who can resist that?!
Join Us This Friday For A Very Festive Tell it Slant Holiday Party: Current list of booty to be brought
Mrs. Womack’s making “arrangements” as far as procuring pizza
Ariel hath volunteered her punch making capabilities
Erik’s root beer will be guzzled
Kate’s cornered a corner of the cookie-market, but, as with all festivities, there’s ample room for things to be done in the cookie arena.
Amy and Saskia are joining forces to produce enough reindeer mix to choke a moose and are also to procure some chips.
Jessica is acting requisitioning sergeant of the infrastructural plates and napkins for this adventure
Monica hath claimed the procurement of cups
Erin Green has vouched for the popcorn.
And finally, some mad scientist weirdo (AKA Me, AKA John Duffee) is embarking on a mad quest to make a Fruitcake Pie...
There remains ample room in the production or procurement of crunchable snackery, sweet treats, and even beverages, seeing as how we've got punch and a rootbeer.
And best of all, we're having an all in all rollicking time, and bring something to read because it just wouldn't be lit'rary without it!
Also, we may be getting a visit from Ms. Magrue, the new co-sponsor of Tell it Slant, so let's try not to maim or traumatize her too much until she starts to fight back.

Randi Ewing[The woman who puts this on.]" - Youth and Family Programs bulletin form Carnegie Center
So, there'll be a Writing Workshop at the Carrnegie Center that runs for 6 weeks, from September 12th to November 7th I believe it's on Tuesdays evenings from 5:30-7:00 PM.
The lady who puts it on is pretty cool and I attended the first session of it ever, which was pretty good. I think there has only been one other session since, that one being the spring session.
I don't believe I'll be able to attend it for my scheduling this time around. but hey, that's part of why I'm trying to promote it to youse guys 'n' gals.
If you're interested in getting some alternate views on the subject, just remember to take what Ned says with a grain of salt if you ask him.
As for Erin Clouthier, if you can get ahold of her to ask her, even briefly about it, more power to you. I believe she's "mr___moonshine" here on LJ, but I'll have to verify...
Come one and all!
A good time was had by pretty much all last time. Except for Vincent and myself, apparently. I'm sorry, I'm just incapable of having fun.
Anyway, come to Lit Mag, the submissions review process has been going pretty well so far.
Also, we still need and are definitely still accepting submissions of written literary materials!
But most importantly we need ART! Photos, Sketches, Drawings, Cartoons, Caricatures, Paintings, We're in need! So if you have any visual artist friends, please, Remind them to submit and help us make a more enjoyable literary magazine.
Remember, Submit Writing(poetry, prose), Submit Art, Come to Lit Mag, and Recruit from friends and acquaintances for both art and writing submissions!
You can even talk it over with your english teachers to see if you can get some last ditch extra credit if you get publish'd!
As if any of you actually look at this. *stares at Vinchezo*
So basically, I'm thinking, As you go through your spring break, figure out what the hell spring and spring break actually mean and/or represent to you and write out a scene that best typifies, exemplifies, or just plain shows what spring is to you.
And I'm relying on Jessica to send this via email to Vincent if he doesn't read this himself. As Vincent, it's up to you to send out the group email as Jessica is being impatient and will kill me if I take the time to do it myself.
Good bye and goodluck
So remind everyone else that you need to show up to the next meetings. Undergrounds is March Tenth so really we should've had mandatory meetings since mid-January, but hinsight is 20-20.
Tomorrow we're going to be hashing out some details with band-reps and making Undergrounds advertisement flyers.
We should also be getting those entry forms that Vincent was going to bring awhile ago for the poetry slam being put on by the Mayor's Youth Council or some such organization. They're due like monday so if you're interested, please show up.
March 10th, 2006. Henry Clay Cafeteria.
Time Set for approximately 7:00 to 10:30 for the show itself. Roughly Estimated Staff Time: 6:15-11:15
Currently have told Varden Fall, The Moondogs, and Alistair Dark(Justin K.)
Also, if you're interested in helping with the Henry Clay Poetry Slam, then email me back or just reply to the group email I'm sending out. I know a few of you had some specific complaints about the last one. One of the more notable being that it wasn't actually slamming. In which case, you should definitely let me know you're interested in it because Ms. Cantrell(librarian) wants to meet with some of us from Lit Mag about such concerns and also the particulars of our help in setting up for it. Also, it is scheduled, roughly, for March 22nd.
