Yay! It’s the start of M&M Week

 

Back in May, I thought it might be fun to host some kind of networking tea and crumpets/soda and chips event here on An Englishman in New Jersey, where people could meet other folks with the same kind of writing interests. 

I called it Mix and Mingle week.

It was a lot of fun, so I thought I'd do another one.

Here’s how it works:
I’m very lucky to have lots of talented, wisdomous, writerly friends. Many of these good people share common interests, but don’t know each other...yet. Not all of them are on Live Journal. Some have accounts (or in the case of LJ users, additional accounts) on Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot etc.

If you’re interested in making some new writer friends, share a few words about yourself and your writing, along with a link to your website, Wordspace, Blogspot, Facebook, Twitter accounts etc. where folks can find out more about you and your work, then add/follow/friend you on the relevant platforms if they so desire.

If you don’t have an LJ account, you can still take part via an anonymous comment, but don’t forget to include your name. 

Of course, it’s up to you, but this is ‘Mix and Mingle’ not ‘Find a Fan’ week, so I recommend sticking to general info: how long you’ve been writing; what you usually blog about; preferred genre; favorite authors etc. 

As for me, I’m looking forward to finding out more about my friends. 

Have fun. Now, where did I put those teabags?

Hi, I'm Rose Lemberg. I am a poet and short fiction writer, and I edit Stone Telling, a new magazine of boundary-crossing poetry. Most of my work is boundary-crossing in some way. My professional fiction sales were Jewish-themed magic realist stories (one will be reprinted in People of the Book: Decade of Jewish SFF, from Prime). I do write straight fantasy as well, which is often feminist, multi-cultural, or both.

In real life I am a professor, and a mother of a wonderful four year old boy with moderate to severe autism.

Feminist fantasy. Would that be 'Sword and Sorceress'? ;)

Pssst, swords are phallic symbols of patriarchal oppression, didn't you know? ;)

Oh, I didn't realize, sorry.

So is that 'Phallic symbols of patriarchal oppression and Sorceress?' :)

I think you mean "Phallic symbols of patriarchal oppression and a Perky Young Heroine with Sparkles + 25," and no, I do not write in that genre :)

When I write fantasy, I write twisted weird shit. It makes me happy.

Pity, with a catchy name like that, I expect the public would demand more work in that genre :)

Indeed, there is the series of anthologies with that very title originally edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley and now, since her death, edited by Elizabeth Waters.

To clarify, no, I do not write "Sword and Sorceress," and I have a very specific opinion about the Bradley anthologies, which I'd better not disclose on Jon's blog.

That would be "The Chick is in the Mail" and the rest of that lovely series of Xena-meets-farting-glittery-unicorn-mind-junk-food, right? :)

There may have been some comic stories, but I think most were serious. The series of anthologies pre-dates Xena by some years, if I remember correctly.

Very cool! And I'm with you...boundaries are there to be crossed!
