Coupling, Learning, Dying: The Cinesprit Magazine Launch! #films

Hi all! Some of you may remember fellow writer/blogger Marcus Clearspring from the A to Z Challenges. In fact, he designed those nifty "next blog" buttons. Well, he's launched a brand new magazine called Cinesprit, devoted to all things cinema. Rather than a collection of movie reviews, it's a mix of articles, essays, short may even include screenplays and poetry. The idea is to provide thoughtful discussion on the ways movies affect us, entertain us, even change us.

(In the interests of full disclosure, I've got an article and a short story in the first issue.)

There will also be private forums available for discussions. The more people involved, the better! Got an idea for a submission? Go ahead and make your pitch!

I've included links with coupons; there's 2 articles free to read/listen to (yes, there's excellent audio) as well as introductions to the others. In the first issue:

Movies Are Important Marcus Clearspring

Stilled Life With Movie Lisa Vooght (flash fiction)

Cinema On the Spectrum Lisa Vooght (autism)

Coupling With King and Bergman Joshua Brunsting

Star Wars, Little Rascals and Red Balloons  Marcus Clearspring

True Fiction Fredric Gustafsson

Learning From Movies Robert William Kingett

Hope you enjoy this inaugural issue. And if it's not your cup of tea...well, maybe you could spread the word to your film loving friends and followers?

As always, thanks for stopping by and for your support.
