If you haven't checked out the site yet, it's super cute, a bit snarky, and always fun and informative! Mookychick (http://www.mookychick.co.uk/) is a weekly online magazine for alternative women that features alternative style, beauty, health, relationship and career advice, music and general alternative culture. They're into social activism and come up with how-to guides on everything from casting a spell to making a fruit bowl out of a record. Plus, they wrote an amazing review of WOW! here.

PS. Remember, WOW!'s Fall Flash Fiction Contest, with guest judge literary agent Andrea Hurst, also closes on November 30, 2011. We hope you enter both! Good luck!
