Reminders from Weave

With all the success we have seen, with our grant funding and amazing contributors for issue one, it's hard to believe that Weave Magazine is barely six months old. Sometimes when you are a fledgling journal, it can be difficult to keep the momentum going with regard to submissions and inquiries.

While we will be very busy over the next two months with preparation for the issue one release, we absolutely love seeing new submissions in our inbox. We are still open for submissions for issue two until January 31, 2009. Please see our submission guidelines to stay up-to-date on any changes.

We hope you have enjoyed our first two reviews from this summer - we have three more reviews lined up for the fall. If you have a chapbook or a book coming out this winter, please contact us at to request a review.

Weave Contributors Read This Week!

Two of Weave's first issue contributors will be doing readings this week. We are a little late in announcing the first one, Molly Prosser, who will be reading TONIGHT TUESDAY:

Do you have a love for poetry with a little hookah on the side? Then come to the Sphinx Poetry readings, where local poets share their writing in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

Molly Prosser and Michelle Stoner will be reading. Open mic will follow.

The Sphinx Cafe
401 Atwood St
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Michelle is also a good friend of ours and we're excited to hear both of them read.

Later this week, Jason Kirin will be reading at Your Inner Vagabond's Poetry Caravan Series:

Your Inner Vagabond discovers its Inner Beatnik as we continue our FREE monthly poetry & literature series on with a poetry reading that will feature Jason Kirin. Following the reading, other poets, writers & artists are invited to take the Vagabond stage to present their work. To be held every Third Thursday in Pittsburgh's most eclectic coffeehouse & performance venue, the Poetry Caravan is a place for new and emerging writers from all literary disciplines to hone & showcase their writings in front of an appreciative & supportive audience. Interested writers should contact YIV to reserve a time-slot. Cost: FREE & BYOB! All Ages.

Your Inner Vagabond

We hope you can make it out to support the local poetry scene! If you are one of our contributors and you have a reading coming up, feel free to contact us and we'll add it to our calendar and try to include it on our blog.

Weave Thanks the Sprout Fund!

Weave Magazine would like to express the most sincere gratitude to The Sprout Fund Board of Directors for generously approving our grant proposal. The Sprout Fund is a nonprofit organization supporting innovative ideas and grassroots community projects that are catalyzing change in Pittsburgh.. The first issue of Weave promises to be a beautiful collection of art and writing. Now we can also expand our efforts into the community by participating in conferences and providing support through informational and creative workshops. Weave strongly believes in the power of engaging the community and thankfully those at The Sprout Fund agree.

Thank you, Sprout Fund, for believing in Weave Magazine!
