New Blog on the Block: Upstate Upstarts

Last week I gave a blogging workshop at the University of South Carolina Upstate, where I also did a talk. And I'm thrilled to share that the feminist group on campus has now launched their blog! I love their description:

"UPSTARTS IS THE ONLINE VOICE OF UPSTATE FEMINISTS, A STUDENT-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION ON THE CAMPUS OF USC UPSTATE DEDICATED TO COMMUNICATING IN CLEAR AND ENERGETIC TERMS THE RELEVANCE OF FEMINISM TO TODAY'S COLLEGE-AGE WOMEN AND MEN."

Yesssss! And a hearty welcome to you from all of us here at GWP.

Keep an eye out for these upstarts. They are utterly setting the world on fire down there.

Kudos to Faculty Advisor Dr. Lisa Johnson, President Andrea Miller, Vice President Lindsay Harris, and Secretary Candace Lamb, pictured left. And for those of you who know Lisa (editor of the stellar anthology Jane Sexes It Up), check out her new hair. You can't tell from the picture, but she's got a blue streak running through it. Made me want to come back and do something funkier with my hair!
