Sunday, August 25, 2002 Long Road Home

New project - from Durham to Celaya, Mexico.
Check out the "save my place" feature. This project tracks your progress and will advance to your last position when you return to the project.

Journale is re-born.

We've been on the web since 1997, when we first premiered as "Story Line." We changed our name to Journal E a year later to better reflect the electronic nature of our online publication.
Now, we want our name to reflect the space it lives in a broader and more exploratory way. We have always seen Journal E as a type of online laboratory for modern storytelling, and with Musarium we will continue the tradition and establish a place where stories are told in interesting and powerful ways.
