Grrrl Week

girl empowerment

I've been thinking about messages of empowerment for girls ever since Tavi announced on her blog the style rookie that her and the old editor of Sassy will be launching a new magazine for teen girls "that doesn't suck". Here are some images from pop culture that influenced me, and helped me find messages of girlhood resistance even when it seemed they were the only ones!

I'm really curious: What were some of yours????

More From Expo Zine

Expozine was so fun!! Here are some more pictures of our sexy table. We were placed beside WORN Fashion journal and Guillaume mentioned how the two fit perfectly together - take your clothes off with us, then move over a table and get dressed with the smart, sassy (and also sexy) WORN. Thank you to all who came by our table, it was truly great to talk with you and spread the smutty love.

Local Legends!

In case you've been tossing and turning at night, waking up in a cold sweat, screaming into the darkness, and wondering what the Lickety Split readers at the Local Legends event looked like, behold!

Lickety Split: Legendary, local, and lovely.

Many thanks to everyone who attended the Lickety Split reading last Wednesday, November 3, at the Concordia Co-op Bookstore. Olga Wolstenholme, Guillaume Morissette, and I, all read work as part of the Co-op's amazing Local Legends series. We had a blast! 'Twas a night of laughs, chats, and cupcakes. Hopefully, we'll be doing more Lickety readings in the future, but let me get back to you on that one. Otherwise, can't wait to see you all at Expozine next weekend!
