What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site and also many important official Anglican sites worldwide.

Seeking Submissions from Young Adults in the Episcopal Church in the USA
Open submissions are being accepted for an experimental magazine created by young adults in the Episcopal Church in the USA and being shaped and edited by young adults from Episcopal Divinity School.

Creative expressions of faith are wanted from folks age 18 to 35 for the magazine pilot that will be published and distributed to Episcopal campus ministries and Episcopal churches with young adult programs. Creative expressions of all sorts are welcome, including but not limited to art, creative non-fiction, poetry, and photography. "Expressions of faith" may by all means include doubt and searching. We seek art from all genres, and writing that is creative, raw, and authentic. Deadline for the pilot issue is August 27, 2004, to be published by January 2005.

Send submissions along with your name, address, email, age, and a little something about yourself and about your submission to:
