Editor’s Note: July 2018

#7. Vol 6

Hello, hello, July is here. Yes, really July is here. Just like June, this month is going to be a bit quiet, but there will be lots of great things happening for this month.

New music coming from Drake, Florence + the Machine, Gorillaz, John Coltrane, Cowboy Junkies, Daughtry, and many more will be releasing albums in July. As for Summer music festivals, there are a lot coming this month! 80/35 Music Festival 2018, Summerfest 2018, Rockfest Wisconsin 2018, MoPop Festival 2018, and Essence Music Festival 2018, and many many more will be on the list.

The 2019 AWP Conference & Bookfair is coming to Portland Oregon March 27-30. If this is up your alley, then it’s time to register, which starts on August 1, 2018. Event proposal dates have already passed, but again if you are interested in registering, August 1 is the date. They will be more information coming soon. Writers conferences, retreats, residencies, and festivals are coming up and I’ve found quite a handful for this year and next year.

Artists, illustrators, graphic artists, I haven’t forgotten any of you. The Houston Fine Art Fair, Mississippi Art Education Association and many others are preparing for their upcoming fairs, conferences, retreats, and so on and so on. As always I keep you guys posted for any that may interest you. Gamers same thing.

Let us not forget the biggest comic con…Comic-Con International in San Diego is already coming around the corner. I hope you guys were able to get all your passes or badges to this event. The dates are July 19-22, 2018, Preview Night is July 18, 2018.

Shadow Spotlight goes to Danielle Weber, an artist from Down Under who works are gaining great attention. I can’t wait for you guys to see her story told in her own words!

I hope y’all are ready for this month, so let’s us begin!

Goodbye June, Hello July!
