Due to timing and manpower limitations, we’re going to be changing things up a little for the 3rd issue of the quarterly. We’ve decided to shelve the WCW idea for now and go in a different direction.
We were planning on making the 4th issue of Fair to Flair a best-of retrospective of the first year of the site. All throughout 2011, Fair to Flair has been the place online to read quality wrestling journalism, and we think it deserves being immortalized in a volume. But because the 3rd issue is coming out at the end of the year, it makes sense for us to use it instead.
Issue 3 will be a collection of the best essays from Fair to Flair from our first year, as well as exclusive new essays from each staff writer. Pre-orders will open up in mid-December. It’s going to be awesome.
Now, what to make for issue 4? Backstage, we’ve been tooling with the idea of a “women’s wrestling month,” and we’ve decided that issue 4 will be the launch of an annual celebration of all things women in wrestling. It will launch March 1, 2012, the first day of the very first Women’s Wrestling Month. Today, we’re inviting everyone who wants to contribute to send your essays, art, and musings to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take the very best of it for the print issue, and, throughout March, publish everything to Fair to Flair.
