Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope the world has been treating you well. Before we take a look at what’s been posted on the blog recently, I want to remind you that the deadline for submissions to the Spring 2017 issue of the Jet Fuel Review is approaching. You can submit your art, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry right here until March 15th. If you’re interested, please take a look at the Review’s main site and send us your work!
We’ve had lots of interesting new posts on the blog lately. To begin with, some new series have begun and some new bloggers have now joined our team. “Casual Critics” is a new series written on alternate weeks by Reno Stramaglia and Donatas Ružys, two new film bloggers. Their inaugural post included a review of The Founder. They followed that up with a review of The Godfather.
There is also a new series called “Words an’ Pictures,” in which comic blogger Quinn Stratton reviews and expounds upon all things related to comics. Right now, you can read his introduction post and a post he wrote about Entertaining Comics (E.C.). If you want to learn more about Quinn, he was the subject of this semester’s first “Meet the Editors” post.
Blogger Sabrina Parr has returned to her “Book Corner” posts this semester. Check out her latest posts, which focus on Spelled by Betsy Schow and The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen. Gina Capperino has also returned to continue her “Romantic Inquiries” series. Her first post this semester discusses the film La La Land. Also, be sure to check out Michael Lane’s review of John Wick: Chapter Two.
Finally, check out another one of our “Meet the Editors” posts, this time featuring our new Layout Editor and Assistant Fiction/Non-fiction Editor, Kayla Chambers.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
