Things We Saw Today: Indie Quill’s Quest to Be the Best Small-Press Books Marketplace

Hey all, we’ve got plenty of things we saw today! For starters, take a look at this neat IndieGoGo for IndieQuill.com. If you’ve ever wanted to or thought about supporting small press books and self-publishers, then you should definitely check out this campaign for a brand new indie marketplace!

  • Speaking of campaigns, Bernie Sanders has won the reader poll for TIME’s Person of the Year! Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like he’s made the magazine’s short list, begging the question of why the heck they have a reader poll anyway. Hmm. (via The Daily Dot)
  • Today on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm announced that the Fan Film Awards are opening up again this year. The contest invites fans to create their own Star Wars themed films to be reviewed by the lovely folks over at Lucasfilm. They’ll be announcing the rules and prizes soon, so stay tuned.

Supergirl Ep 6 3

A bit of a special announcement: Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh are going to make an appearance at C2E2 next March! They’ll be doing autographs and photo-ops, so if you want to meet the too-awesome-for-words Danvers sisters, here’s your shot. (via C2E2)

  • Next up: an incredible piece on taking girl games more seriously. Written by Rachel Catlett over on Kill Screen, it’s a fantastic essay on the importance of empowering the next generation of women through play. Definitely give this a read.
  • Finally, another essay from Julie Bush on the reasons people contact her. It’s a great statement on the whacked-out reasons she’s been contacted whenever she shares her opinion on things. It’s a great peek into what female critics face whenever they write about something on the interwebs.

So, that’s it from us! What have you got to share today?
