Literature cannot be the business of a woman's life, and it ought not to be. The more she is engaged in her proper duties, the less leisure will she have for it even as an accomplishment and a recreation.

deadline for submissions:

In a society defined by digital experiences, the online makeup tutorial democratizes the “American dream,” making it accessible to all—all who can find an audience of followers/subscribers, that is. It connects YouTube celebrities who promote makeup-challenge tags and offer advice to their subscribers/followers and helps bring individuals into a larger virtual community. It further promotes what constitutes intimacy in modern society via cross channel communication between “YouTubers” and interactive on-screen dialogue with channel subscribers, who can gain further “intimacy” with their makeup gurus through additional outlets like Snapchat and Twitter.
