Growing and Evolving

 

Jeffrey HIllard—editor, RED! the breakthrough 'zine  Greetings, RED! the breakthrough ‘zine Readers,

As RED! moves into another year of publication, and nears its third anniversary, we are proud to unveil a new look. RED! continues to grow and evolve. Thanks to the design talent and innovations of RED! web editor, Christine Grote, we are moving to a blog format. Our address, www.redwebzine.org now takes you to the new blog.

If you are on this page, you are accessing the archives. You can return to our current site by clicking the "return" button in the header on this page. Clicking the RED! header in the upper left corner will return you to this page.

Please be patient with the transition. You’ll soon notice that news and information will be even more quickly delivered. We went “fluid” (more than weekly) in April 2009, and now that fluidity will be ramped up.

The opportunities for you to offer feedback and interact with RED! will be more prominent. The new site will enable RED! to come alive in a fresh new way.

If you currently rely on the RED! rss feed to stay informed, as part of the transition you may need to sign back up on our new page. We recommend you also subscribe. These buttons are available at our new site.

There will always be new posts.

So, here’s what’s coming soon:

  • more regularity of news, features, Jeff’s Blog, and columns – with additional columnists forthcoming

  • heightened multi-media

  • new work (including inmate art) in the next few days and weeks by columnists, The Legend – columnist Demetrius “Hook” Mitchell – Karyn B. Alexander, Angela Derrick, and Melissa Vanover; drawings by inmates Jimmy Brown and Matthew Moore; stories by writers Melissa Parnell and Drew Fox; and “Action Words” essays by Brian Crawford, Dale E. Jones, and “Irish” Johnny Harvey; video interviews and more

  • look for a video feature by Grant McDonald

  • intensified coverage of two organizations with which RED! partners: Sonje Ayiti and MissionRise

  • quicker updates on urgent issues facing the criminal justice system globally

I thank you endlessly for your support. I thank you for your dedicated reading. Thanks for spreading the word on, what we believe, is one of the most unique and original internet magazines in the world.

It’s because of your belief in stories of transformation, hope, positive life-changes and breakthroughs, and innovative leadership that RED! generates the thousands of readers it cherishes.

Onward,

Jeffrey Hillard
