Yes, I know I haven’t blogged in like a year or some such. And, yes, this is disappointing as I promised I’d keep everyone abreast of publishing information. And, yes, I do suck.
But, this popped up in my feed today, so I have decided to post it here. I’m not saying that I’ll start blogging about personal stuff again, but if intersting tid-bits come about, I’ll repost them here.
Anyway, enough of my rambling preamble. These are figures regarding literary magazines, and their interaction with female writers — whether that’s reviewing a female author, or using women to write their reviews and stories. And, to be honest, it’s shameful. While we all knew it was going on, seeing the woman’s voice reduced to a pie-chart sliver makes it harder to ignore.

Back in the old NFTI days, I used to put all kinds of awesome links on the blog in hopes of providing information and instigating discussion. I have had all the intention in the world of doing this for NTFI-The Agency, but I just don’t have the time. Actually, it’s my job at work to look up cool publishing and literature stuff on the internet and report back to others. Unfortunately, the ‘others’ are limited to my co-workers and bosses, and not my bloggy-woggy followers. Also, as I do not blog at work (unlike at MNM where I consistently blogged at work), I don’t have time to make a note of all these cool links on this site. Instead, I’ve been keeping a record of them separately, promising myself that I will ‘one day, when I get a chance, put them up on NFTI for all to see.’ Continue reading

I know I shouldn’t be blogging from work, but I am so, so, very, very tired, and it’s a glorious spring day, and even with the windows cracked in the office I just can’t stay awake. I’m hoping this will wake me up a bit and help me focus. Continue reading
