Hello, The Heat Lightning readers and everyone else!
We’d like to welcome John Waters to South Florida, THL style, with love letters and stuff. We’ll be celebrating Dirty Boy! week at THL in honor of one of our heroes. For the first time ever, we will be taking submissions from all over the place and all of you to be posted on the site.
We are open to articles, drawings, cartoons, letters of love, admiration, hatred, fear, or whatever, as long as they’re about or in reference to John Waters, the most crude and brilliant of filmmakers and mixtape makers.
Waters will be at Miami Book Fair International on Nov. 17 to promote Role Models, his new book, which profiles the personalities of his favorites, including (my fav) Tennessee Williams and also a lesbian stripper (not the two together, unfortunately). This will be my third time seeing John Waters, but I’ll tell you all about it next week.
Dirty Boy!, Our tribute to John Waters, begins on Nov. 14. We will publish all of your notes and such, long or short, in some way. If we love your story, you get to be featured. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
