First; some announcements!
1. Crystal needs an Australian music writer! We’re calling for music enthusiasts from Sydney who would like to help with concert and album reviews and interviews. Experience isn’t essential – we’re mostly interested in your writing skills and confidence to do interviews. This isn’t a paid gig. We’re seeking students and budding writers who are motivated by the chance to develop a portfolio. And free stuff.
2. We’re working on a sort of “welcome to the redesign” letter to tell you what’s changing here, how awesome Tess & Alex are, what still needs to be done, and address any issues you have with the site. If you do encounter any kinks, email alex[at]autostraddle.com.
3. Thank you to everyone who’s contributed to our fall fundraising drive! You still have six more days to help us support this place!
4. We’re in Los Angeles right now, which means we can do a little Advice Column Vlog for you. So, if you have any questions for Riese & Haviland’s advice column, email us asap at yourmom[at] autostraddle.com!
Here’s how that goes, btw. You give us questions, we try to answer kinda:
