Carnival news

The Down Under Feminists Carnival has a new home and a new co-ordinator. After founding the carnival and steering it along for over two years, Lauredhel has passed it on to the fabulous Chally, who writes at her own place, Zero at the Bone, and at Feministe and FWD/Forward. Lauredhel, thank you for all the work you've put into the carnival over the past couple of years.

The new carnival home is here: Down Under Feminists Carnival.

The next carnival is due to go up on 5 August, at my own place. That means that I'm looking for submissions. Any feminist post (broadly interpreted) by any down under blogger (broadly interpreted) can be included in the carnival. If you've posted something during July that you think would be good for the carnival, or if you've read a post somewhere that you think should be in the carnival, then send it in, either via the carnival submission page, or direct to me at my hotmail address, where I use dfr141 as my handle.

And think about whether you might be able to host the carnival yourself, at your place. Chally is looking for carnival hosts for October, November, December and beyond. If you think you could host it, drop her a line at: chally [dot] zeroatthebone [at] gmail [dot] com

Please, do support the carnival. Many carnivals don't last for much more than a year or so, and some for less that that. The Down Under Feminists Carnival is doing well, but it needs on-going support. It's a great mechanism for keeping the down under feminist bloggers (writing, reading and commenting) in touch with each other, and for creating community. So send in those submissions, click through and read posts in the carnival, and leave some comments.

While I'm on about carnivals, Anji has posted the Twelfth Carnival of Feminist Parenting at Mothers for Women's Lib. Go take a look: it's a bumper edition.

Thankyou for all your support for the carnival! I'm so glad Chally's taking up the reins. Onward and upward.
