Electric City Creative Issue #3: EXPAND

Holy cow, it's true! Electric City Creative is back with a new issue. You may have been wondering what was going on in our neck of the woods, releasing only 2 issues since July. Aren't we supposed to be a monthly publication? Yes, but sadly, that is not feasible at this time. Due to lack of staff and other writing commitments, Electric City Creative will now be a quarterly magazine until further notice.

Our new publishing schedule is as follows:

February 2011 - Winter, Issue #4
May 2011 - Spring, Issue #5
August 2011 - Summer, Issue #6
November 2011 - Winter, Issue #7

And so on.

But wait a minute, you say. If the Winter issue is supposed to publish in November, then what are we doing with Issue #3 in December? That's a good question, and I don't have a good answer for you other than an apology. That said, I hope you enjoy the new issue. As a reminder, the layout looks more magazine-like if viewed with 2 pages side by side. Play with your PDF reader page view settings.
