The WAND is a monthly publication of Womynspace, an
organization designed by and for womyn, and operated by a
steering committee. Opinions expressed in articles printed
herein do not neccessarily reflect the views of the editors of
the WAND or the Womynspace organization as a whole.
Submissions to the calendar must be camera-ready.with
three inch columns. Groups may send us notice of their regular
meetings and special events by the 15th of the month for the
next month's issue. We are glad to network with other groups
that work for social change and share a feminist perspective.
Submissions of articles, poetry and cover art should have
positive, coalition building content and will be printed at the
discretion of the Newletter Committee. Submissions must be
signed; specify your byline or if you wish your name to be
withheld. Women contributing articles are invited to the
WAND layout, usually on the 4th Tuesday at 6:30pm (check
the WAND calendar). It is helpful to include a phone number
with any submissions so we can call you if significant editing is
required due to lenght.etc. We print as much as space allows;
current events are first priority. We would like to have a
portfolio of materia] we could use in future WAND issues
when we have a quiet month with less events and more space
for articles or poetry. For return of any material, please
enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. We need
community support to ensure the WAND is a comprehesive
networking directory for the women's community in Houston.
Womvnspace is a 100% volunteer organization.

WOMYNSPACE MEMBERSHIP FORM
Benefits of membership include a subscription to the WAND,
discounts on Womynspace events; and discounts with
advertisers listed under Membership Discounts. Womynspace
produces a Halloween and Valentina dance and two retreats,
usually in the fall and spring; events are womyn only and
chem-free. We respect the diversity of the women's community
and at this point of Womynspace's herstory, many of our active
members are not chem-free, but we feel it benefits the
community to provide chem-free space. Essentially, chem-free
means smokers smoke outside and drinkers drink at a
restaurant or bar after the event with other Womynspace
supporters. Finding affordable rental space for dances and
other events has always been a problem. Aquiring permanent
community space is a long-term goal of Womynspace.

enclosed is $10.00 for a one year subscription to the

Happy New Year, my Sisters.
Take a moment to review
how the past year affected you.
Drift through past expectations.
Understand today's realizations.
Daydream and ponder
let your thoughts wander
into what might be.
With your mind's eye
visualize, see your year unfold,
In your hands you hold
your own destiny.
Happy New Year, my Sisters I
