Blueprint Magazine

This issue of blueprint, the lit and culture magazine out of Wilfrid Laurier University is themed around gender and sexuality. Matthew Smith’s “A Subway Exchange,” a yearning vignette of a gay boy pining for his fellow streetcar rider (who, it is revealed, is seemingly straight and partnered), is bittersweet. Sarah Colleen Dillon’s “Saint Clitoris,” a smutty and saintly ode, gives us a trip through a raucous night on the town while it outlines the states and manifestations of vaginal arousal en route to orgasm. “Saint Clitoris” reads like your savant bard of a friend doing smut–witty, tender, rhapsodic, poetic and sexy all at once, with a smattering of facts copped from an anatomy text to ice the cake. Other pieces in this mag fall short of Dillon’s repartee; Andrew Posen’s “Dedication”–a sort of universal call to arms of the marginalized–is muddled and heavy handed, and the non-fiction works are so short as to never really argue a point in-depth, coming off as rants from a soapbox. It’s nice to see a university funding a glossy, non-newsprint arts mag that comes out on a near-monthly basis, but perhaps the increased publishing volume makes for a wider spectrum in the calibre of work within.

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
