Finally, the announcement I announced earlier

There’s nothing on the website yet to which I can link, but the Fall 2008 issue of AGAIN finally arrived in my mailbox today, containing my article about the Fellowship of Ss. Alban and Sergius conference, as well as my review of Cappella Romana’s The Divine Liturgy in English. None of the material will be new to either of my regular readers, although the format, length and structure of the pieces themselves are unique to the print publication — the Fellowship writeup is ~2,500 words (as opposed to the ~6,000 words my blog entries contained), and the review is 750 words, vs. 2,500 here.

As I said earlier, nobody stumbled across the blog and said, “Hey! We should run this!” I thought that I could tailor both pieces to suit AGAIN’s format, and wrote a query note to the managing editor, Fr. Michael Gillis. He liked the ideas, gave me word counts to shoot for, and I set to work getting what I put up here into a form manageable for a magazine. He liked what I turned in, made some suggestions and some editorial decisions, and then ran them. It’s worked out well enough that I wouldn’t be surprised to see some other things come of this, but I know darn well that until you have the issue in hand nothing’s a done deal, so I don’t want to say any more than that for the time being. I have other ideas that might perhaps make a good working relationship with Conciliar Press advantageous down the road a piece; we’ll just see. It’s a beginning.

I’ll put up links once they’re available.

    Richard,

    I just discovered your blog, and I really like it. Also, I greatly enjoyed both of your articles in AGAIN. If you have time, check out my own humble blog at http://saintjameskids.blogspot.com. The blog primarily features verse-by-verse commentary on the Scriptures, with a little bit of devotional reflection, news, social commentary, and college football thrown in.

    Bless, Father! Thank you for dropping by. For some reason your comment went to the spam queue, so my apologies for it not showing up earlier.

    I’ve enjoyed perusing your blog very much and I will add it to my blogroll.

    In Christ,

    Richard
