Subject: [SSE Contest; *SQ* Teaching Shakespeare Issue]
I'd like to make two announcements -- one sublime and one ridiculous and I
won't say which is which:
The Shenandoah Shakespeare Express would like to announce a contest for members
of SHAKSPER. Each year we give our season a name. This year's plays were
*Antony and Cleopatra*, *Romeo and Juliet*, and *Dream*, so we called it the
"Season of Love." Next year we'll be doing *Othello*, *Much Ado*, and *Shrew*,
and we're looking for a name for the season (the name will go on T-shirts,
programs, etc.). So far we've thought of the "Season of Bile," but we thought
we'd let SHAKSPER-ians suggest a name. Winning entry will receive a T-shirt, a
season poster, and our thanks.
Announcement #2: In 1995 *The Shakespeare Quarterly* will be devoting one of
its issues to teaching Shakespeare. Anyone interested in submitting an article
can send it to me, Ralph Alan Cohen

I will be abroad until January 1994, but I should be able to acknowledge sub-
missions shortly after that. Our deadline will October 1994.
