Calvin -- A week and a half away

Our hotel rooms are booked, rides coordinated, and we're e-mail wrestling to settle who gets to see what panel at what time. The entire ccPublishing/Relief staff is anxious to get into Grand Rapids, MI next Wednesday to set up for Calvin College's Festival of Faith and Writing. So it's probably about time we introduce our theme...

Calvin - At the movies!

So, it's probably not a surprise since you've seen our adjusted logo for a week new, but it's about to get a lot more interesting!

At Calvin, we will be introducing the cover of issue 4.1 as "Coming Soon" posters.  We will also have business cards that look like movie tickets that will double as raffle tickets.  We will be raffling two gift baskets a day that will have a copy of the journal, a 2 liter of soda, a bag of popcorn, a box of candy, and a couple of notebooks from our amazing sponsor (Quo Vadis).

Calvin - On the blog

For those of you who cannot make it to Calvin this year, you don't have to miss out on the experience.  Next Wednesday--Saturday, we will be uploading pictures and videos of what's going on at the conference.  This will include pictures of the new cover, staff, and published authors who stop by our booth.  (We are even looking into streaming the Relief/Diner panel. No promises yet.)

Calvin - A social media frenzy

For the conference, we will be tweeting from @ReliefJournal as much as possible, but don't forget to catch tweets from ccPublshing President and Diner Editor Michelle Pendergrass (@michpendergrass), Relief Editor-in-Chief and Fiction Editor Christopher Fisher (@ReliefEditor), Poetry Editor Brad Fruhauff (@BradFruhauff), founding President and Editor Kimberly Culbertson (@KimCulbertson), and Web Editor Ian Philpot (@iphilpot).

We will also be using mobile uploads to send exclusive pictures directly to our Facebook page.

So friend us, follow us, and don't miss out!
