Subject: Announcing The Shakespeare Standard
[Editor's Note: I sent this announcement out without including the web address. This is a corrected version. -HMC]
I'm pleased to announce the arrival of _The Shakespeare Standard_.
_The Shakespeare Standard_ is a news, feature, and blog hub for Shakespeare-related news on the web. We publish news items from around the world on a regular basis while featuring reports, blogs, vlogs, and podcasts from our editorial staff and community contributors.
Our goal is to be the first place you think of when you want the latest news and features on Shakespeare in performance, scholarship, education, multimedia, and foolery.
_The Standard_ has several key features that make it more than just a website. We're integrated with many of your favorite social sites like Twitter and Facebook, and we also feature our own "Social Shakespeare" network that allows you to update your Shakespeare status and interact with editors and other _Standard_ community members right on the site. For companies and productions, we have a "Production Hub" that serves as _The Standard_'s home base for press releases, interviews, photos, and video for individual productions.
_The Standard_ is an edited web site that relies on YOU to contribute news items, comments on stories, blog entries--anything you want to see in Shakespeare-related content.
