I’ve got a fair number of projects in the works right now (including my Gilmore Girls fanzine, which I’ve extended the submissions deadline for), and the newest one, and the one I think I’m most excited about, is a new blog, The Bizarre & The Beautiful.
I asked a few times on Twitter over the past several weeks if people would be interested in a website with a mixed focus on beauty and the paranormal, and while I maybe didn’t get a ton of responses, the ones I did get were full of enthusiasm, so the last time I mentioned that I was still throwing around the idea, I finally just decided to go for it.
My plans for the site include book and podcast reviews, beauty tutorials, tours of haunted places, paranormal history and news, and way more. What I’m hoping for right now is a little bit of help. I’m looking for conributors, either regular or one time, who are interested in writing articles like those mentioned along with other ideas they may have.
If you’re interested in submitting something, please check out the information below from the contributors page of the forthcoming site:
