At long last, with a new name (formerly Sostenuto, formerly permaCulture) that we think is going to stick this time, and with a new address to match, we’re proud to announce the launch of Mosaic: A Magazine of Arts, Sciences & Everything in Between.
You’ll always be able to find our current issue at http://www.mosaic.permaculture.net/common/current.htm. Visit now to check out Issue #1, Spring 2003 — you’ll discover new non-fiction, fiction, poetry, screenwriting and essays. We want to keep the site fresh and organic, with our own new postings and hopefully with reader feedback, so come back periodically to see how our individual issues may evolve over time. We’ll be sure to announce any completely new issues — these may be on a quarterly, semiannual, or other schedule to be determined. If any really significant changes happen to an already-announced issue, we’ll also announce that. Note that you’ll always be able to access our complete works at http://www.mosaic.permaculture.net/common/archives.htm (including our older material, logged there as Issue #0.)
We do want to apologize for the relaunch delay. We simply underestimated how long it would take to get to know each other, learn to work together, and then to work in general. Given that we’re all volunteering our time (and very busy otherwise!), and that to this day we all know each other almost exclusively via email, the delay isn’t too surprising. In the end, we decided that quality is more important than quantity, so we waited rather than rush anything online.
We’re excited to be finally up and running, and we hope you’ll like what you see. The site will continue to develop, and, though we’ve got our own plans, please feel free to let us know what you might like to see in terms of content, site functionality, etc. Thanks for your support.
