Friday Freelance Link Salad - A Little Of This, A Little Of That

"Luke, I am your father" Creative Commons John Vetterli

Calling all the Star Trek fans who have a copy of the captain's chair in front of the t.v., all the Star Wars fans with Mr. Potato Head - Darth Tater (hey, he's cute. So are Spud Trooper and Artoo-Potatoo), and comic book fans a little too much into Power Girl. The true story quarterly Fray Magazine wants Geek stories. They'll take interviews with famous geeks too.

I sooooo qualify for this one. The deadline is this month - not sure when. And they don't pay. But you don't really have to pay us geeks to talk about our stuff, do ya?

And taking a wild 180, Writer Mama says Cup of Comfort is calling for submissions.

In the I-blinked-a-lot-when-I-read-this category, the World Wrestling Federation is launching WWE Magazine for kids 6-14. Yahoo is launching a new women's site for big girls age 25-34. (Please. You couldn't just round it off to 35?)

And in the electronic arena, Popmatters.com is launching a Kindle-only edition of the pop culture mag for the much-publicized ereader while a new online magazine called The Wall Tweet Journal (no, I'm not kidding) is coming to help Twitter users make the most of their social networking.

According to The Knightly News blog, Christian Women Online is sponsoring a no entry fee contest called "Her Life Reflected" (click on the picture in the blog for details) about how a christian mom's life has reflected God. The deadline is April 21st.

Hope I hit at least one of your buttons. Now I'm off to buy Artoo Potatoo. I wouldn't want Darth Tater and Spud Trooper to get lonely.

Query on.
