Please join me in congratulating the "winners" of our latest Call For Writers: Rabbit and Malacola. Now, I know what you're thinking. Who the hell is Rabbit and/or Malacola; and the answer is: I have no idea, but they sure write purty. One is relatively new to the site and bounds fearlessly from lurking wallflower to center stage in a single bound, and the other has elected to adopt a new persona to protect, what he assures me, is his innocence. I'll never tell.
Their submission pieces share similar themes, but approach the questions they raise from interesting and unique angles. Their voice, originality, and eloquence is what struck me most, as they craft two very conversational pieces that engage the reader directly with a deftness that is far more difficult than it appears. I was blown away by both articles, and I hope that you will be as well.
Malacola and Rabbit will be posting their submissions as a front-page introduction late tonight or tomorrow, and I sincerely hope you enjoy their contributions now and in the future. So, join me in welcoming GWJ's latest front-page voices. Welcome to the gig, Rabbit and Malacola.
Congratulations on winning your non-paying, intensely demanding, and often thankless job! Also, beware the casual inappropriate touching. Butt pats all around!
