" A new Internet publishing outlet..."
By Tom Maguire
Tom Maguire is a musician, arts supporter and a guy who travels the Southwest in a 13’ Scamp trailer, because he couldn’t figure out how the tent poles went together.
Meow Wolf Publishing
Meow Wolf, the artists’ collective that has presented some amazing events, including last summer’s "Due Return" installation at CCA, is now expanding into publishing with a new, Santa Fe-based, publishing venture: Meow Wolf Publishing.
MWP is an online, e-publishing house, specializing in works by emerging authors. It offers a way for authors to connect directly with a reading audience, without the costs and bureaucracy associated with a more traditional publishing house. MWP currently has a roster of eight authors, both local and otherwise, and is searching for new and exciting work to offer. Connect with them at: www.publishing.meowwolf.com.
In addition to its online presence, MWP has been actively seeking to promote literary events in the Santa Fe area. Readings by MWP authors occur regularly at a store front at 115 E. Water Street, and performances of MWP dramatic works are planned for the fall.
MWP will also work with Hutton Broadcasting to present work on the air. Look for them on one of our stations in the near future.
And, speaking of publishing…
”Seeing Inside” a collection of Joan Halifax's photographs from her travels in Asia and her meetings with people across the globe, is now available from Axle Contemporary Press. The book contains more than 100 images and an essay by Halifax about her experience of seeing.
Halifax, a Zen Buddhist roshi, anthropologist, ecologist, civil rights activist, hospice caregiver and the author of several books on Buddhism and spirituality, currently serves as abbot and guiding teacher at Santa Fe’s Upaya Zen Center, which she founded in 1990. Halifax-roshi has received Dharma transmission from both Bernard Glassman and Thich Nhat Hanh, and previously studied under the Korean master Seung Sahn. In the 1970s she collaborated on LSD research projects with her ex-husband Stanislav Grof, in addition to other collaborative efforts with Joseph Campbell and Alan Lomax. She is founder of the Ojai Foundation in California, which she led from 1979 to 1989.
