Women And Words: Weekly Roundup 18-24 Feb & The Medieval Pass

February 26, 2017

Women and Words 

Overview, 18-24 Feb. 2017 

Andi and Jove attempt to figure out what exactly a “Medieval Pass” is before they wax serious with regard to Ashley Bartlett’s blog and then Renée Bess’ blog. They’re glad that Women and Words is the kind of space contributors feel comfortable expressing thoughts on the topics both Ashley and Renée addressed this week. And then they got crazy again and rave about the movie Mad Max: Fury Road because nothing says date night like post-apocalyptic car chases across a vast wasteland. Especially with Charlize Theron driving. CHARLIZE THERON, people. She can drive us anywhere she wants! 


18 Feb.:  A call for submissions posted, from Sapphire Books.
