Happy New Year from Mosaic!
Hello all (all including you, you fantastic gelatinous glob of coolness and grin-inducing features)—it’s a new year, a new quarter, and things are picking up speed! A word which here means (as Mr Snicket would say): the avalanche of schoolwork with which we will all shortly be inundated; but more importantly, and more excitingly, it means that things for Mosaic are getting pretty intense!
First of all, the deadline for submissions is coming up fast. The date you’ll be looking at as far as that topic is concerned is January 31st. So please get all your prose and poetry together and send it our way, because we would love to read it, and, more to the point, we would love to publish it. Don’t wait until the last second—the end of January is going to be here sooner than you think. And because it’ll be here sooner than you think, it also means MOSAIC 55 will be here sooner than you think. Wow! I don’t know about you, but I think that is freaking exciting.
We’ve already gotten some really great pieces together for this year’s issue, and we hope to have many more come the end of the month.
OK, next item on the agenda: events! We’re going to continue our string of writing salons every two weeks starting this coming Monday, January 11th (details forthcoming, don’t you fret). In addition, we’ll be setting up more open mics this quarter, so be on the lookout for any information regarding those—remember that they are fun as hell, and if you’re not there, we will miss your pretty face.
Hope everyone had a great holiday, and welcome to 2016!
Love, Ben (and the rest of the Mosaic staff)
