The May 2011 issue of the Kansas Mason is now posted online, and the issue has been sent to the printers in advance of our publication deadline.
This is only possible because of the hard work of our writers and editors for this issue; Howard Duncan, Dan Morrow, Chet Peterson, Max Pittman, Nolan Sump, and our proofreader, Jan Nelson. The issue contains the regular columns by the Grand Master and the Grand Secretary and GSW Rick Reichert also provided us with an excellent article on the Masonic experience life cycle. Also included are the official edicts from the Annual Communication, and news of the Craft both in Kansas and abroad. The paper copy should reach your US Mail carrier the first week in May.
The issue is full, and regrettably we had to make some hard choices in deciding what could fit in. Submissions that reached us in advance of the deadline and were in electronic format received precedence over hand-written or paper submissions. Because of the all-volunteer nature of our staff, we do not have the time or manpower to transcribe hand-written or paper submissions. But you can help bridge that gap by sending all submissions by email with electronic images (.jpg/.png) accompanying each story. For further information, please consult our style sheet.
The Fall issue of the Kansas Mason is due out in September 2011. Writer’s deadline for submissions is August 15, 2011.
