The second issue of Raging Chicken Press is now up! In my experience, the second issue of a new publication is always difficulty to get out. A lot of energy gets spent mobilizing for the launch of the inaugural issue and just when you think you’ve got a little breathing room, deadlines for the next issue are just around the corner. I am quite pleased at how well this issue came together. Not only did we get some stellar submissions, all the contributions this time round are interconnected. I hope that you like our second issue as much as the first!
This issue of Raging Chicken Press features:
- “History Demands Nonviolent Resistance from Us,” by Dustin Slaughter
- “‘Accountability’ Isn’t Enough [Some Angry Language],” by Seth Kahn
- “Those Fracking Letters to the Editor,” by Wendy Lee
- “One Big Company Town: Frack the Future,” by Kevin Mahoney
- “Book Review: Naomi Schaeffer Riley, The Faculty Lounges,” by Amanda Lynch Morris
- “A Letter to America and Her People,” by J. Rizzo Mertz
- “This Video is for Rich People Only | MOC #65,” by Lee Camp
- “No Need for Conspiracy Theories: The Inside Story on Why Cenk Uyger Left MSNBC,” by Kevin Mahoney
- “Don’t Frack Your Mother,” graphic by Michelle Sayles
I hope this issue will generate as much excitement as our last issue. I’m also already looking forward to our September issue which will be a “Back to School” issue. The call for submissions for the September issue will be out very, very soon.
We’ll also be rolling out some exciting new things for the fall. Beginning in September, Raging Chicken Press will be holding monthly “meet-ups” the week after an issue is published — locations to be announced, so stay tuned. These meet-ups will allow Raging Chicken Press contributors, fans, family, and friends to have a chance to talk and network. From the beginning, Raging Chicken Press has sought to contribute to building progressive, social movements not just write about them.
In the coming months I will also increase my calls to help support the work of Raging Chicken Press. As you know, you can help contribute to our work by using the links on the right side of our site to give donations, pick up some Raging Chicken Press gear, or simply shop at Amazon.com or Powells.com. I hope we can keep Raging Chicken Press a community supported independent, progressive media site.
So, let us know what you think!
