"Women on the Edge of Time" is co-edited by Los Angeles-based artist Megan Whitmarsh. It collages voices from the past, present and future through fiction, essays, images, interviews and worksheets. It is in two parts:
1. A thirty-page newsletter with contributions from Amanda Ackerman, Susun Weed, Trinie Dalton, Leah Modigliani, Amy Sedaris, Marisa Williamson and others.
2. A fabric version of the newsletter, which distills the contents of the printed multiple. It encourages readers to gather together, slow down and magnify reading through an interactive communal experience. The conversations that occur through the magazine’s text can expand to move between readers. Austin is its first stop, before moving to shows in Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, and other locations TBA.
