In June, Kultivate Magazine published the first volume of Quill and Pen, a new twice-yearly publication focusing on the work of writers and poets from across Second Life.

Quill and Pen features short stories (including flash stories), non-fiction and poetry, and is published each June and December.

The journal was initially made available through the Kultivate Magazine website in Issuu format, and via Smashwords in epub, PDF and Mobi / Kindle formats. However, as of August 15th, 2016, it is also available in  Kobo, Scribd and Nook formats.

The in augural volume features contributions by R. Crap Mariner, Eleseren Brianna, Glitterprincess Destiny, Kamille Kamala, Dawnbeam Dreamscape, Sabreman Carter, BayJoy, Judith Cullen aka Caledonia Skytower, Huckleberry Hax, Hobby Writer, Journey McLaglen aka Cindy Landers, Bryn Oh, Inara Pey, Ahn Avion, Pieni Resident, and John Herring aka Johannes1977 Resident.

I’m especially please and privileged to be a part of this newest publication in the Kultivate  portfolio, and doubly delighted to have witnessed the strong show of support for the first volume from the writing community in Second Life.
