Dear Sinister Wisdom Sisters,

Thank you to everyone who joined us last Thursday night for the incredible evening celebrating the publication of Sinister Wisdom 118: Forty-Five Years / A Tribute to the Lesbian Herstory Archives edited by Elvis Bakaitis, Shawn(ta) Smith-Cruz, and Red Washburn. It was an extraordinary night.

I hope you will join me and continue the celebration. For the next week, Sinister Wisdom is please to make available for private, in home screening, the film The Archivettes by Megan Rossman (this link will take you to the trailer for the film). Then, on Tuesday at 7 p.m. we will gather on zoom for a discussion with Megan about the film, the Lesbian Herstory Archives, and the fall Sinister Wisdom issue. This event will be on zoom and will be broadcast live on the Sinister Wisdom Facebook page. It is going to be another magical evening. I hope you will join us.

To watch the film, go to: https://www.wmm.com/the-archivettes-watch-page-sinister-wisdom/
and enter the password: ARCHWAT20. The film will only be available until Wednesday, 28 October 2020 at midnight. Watch it while you can!

Join us on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET for the live discussion with Megan Rossman. This event will be on zoom and livestreamed to Facebook. During the event, chat will be open to ask questions and make comments about the film while we talk - and we will have plenty of time for questions and discussion that evening, but if you want to send thoughts in advance, I would love to hear them. Feel free to email me at julie at sinisterwisdom dot org in advance of our gathering. I've not yet seen the film and I am very excited about it.

Please keep scrolling in this email for more announcements and updates about Sinister Wisdom. I look forward to seeing and talking with you next Tuesday night!

In sisterhood,

Julie

Pinpointing the Visual in Writing for the Stage and Screen
A Sinister Wisdom Writer’s Workshop with Alexis Clements
Saturday, December 5th, 12PM EST
 

What the audience sees when watching a film or a play is sometimes even more important than the words they hear. But it's not always easy to balance dialogue, action, and visuals. In this workshop we'll do a few exercises to explore your ideas for the stage and screen through the visuals. The workshop will be led by writer and filmmaker Alexis Clements. A guest editor of Sinister Wisdom 101: Variations, Alexis has over a decade of experience writing for the stage and in the fall of 2019, she premiered her first film, a feature-length documentary about LGBTQ+ women's spaces and communities.
