Mapping Me Administration

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say that I (Orchid) will be stepping back from Mapping Me in order to finish my novel. I love this project and it has been a fantastic experience but my goal for this year was to finish my novel. Unfortunately I have been unable to complete this task and so I will have to step briefly away from the Mapping Me project that Tamara is now directing. Please give her the support and patience as she completes the project.

Just to clarify that all submissions will be read. Unfortunately, we have had to delay our reading process but we will let everyone know as soon as it is possible. I still be in the background of Mapping Me but all queries should be directed to Tamara at mappingme(at)

Have a safe holiday!

A Message from Tamara

As we greet December, perhaps with some hesitation, considering how fast the year has gone.. again. I embrace this last month of 2010 as a conclusion to a year that has been challenging but also full of inspiration and promise. Wherever the 2nd December may find you - be it in New Zealand gearing up for beach and barbeque season, in Northern Hemisphere preparing for the chill of snow or in the Middle East (where I am at the moment), praying for rain to finally arrive. Wherever we may be there is no doubt this month we are united by the feeling of hope for the new year. This year we have had privilege to receive creative work from all corners of our planet. Stories that are personal and courageous; art that is evoking and sensual. We want to once again thank all our creatives for their submissions. We are slowly but surely compiling the work we've received and aiming to have the draft finished as soon as possible.

November Update

The Mapping Me team are currently is the slow phase of the book development. Tamara is overseas pursuing numerous leads while simulataneously working on her own projects. For myself, I am juggling the demands art directing for television, my novel and poetry collection yet for both of us, Mapping Me is never far from our minds. We are both excited by the range of voices we have selected. Nevertheless the process is a slow one as we are both keen to develop a project of which everyone can be proud. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at mappingme(at)gmail(dot)com.
