CLAWmarks is CLAWs' bi-annual magazine. Written by CLAWmembers for CLAWmembers, it's filled with in-jokes, subculture-specific humour, reports on CLAWevents and occasionally even some articles related to roleplaying.
Two regular features are the Archbigot of the Necropolis and the Classifieds. The Classifieds are a failed attempt to confine the in-jokes to one section of the magazine and then hide them at the back. The end result is always that the in-jokes breed rapidly during the editing process and then explode out, filling every nook and cranny - often squeezing out finely-crafted, insightful prose. If in-jokes are the Port Jackson of CLAWmarks then the classifieds are Australia.
The Archbigot is a lengthy, non sequitur rant directed at a random victim and written by the exhausted editorial team on the morning that the magazine is due to be printed. It often involves goats, bananas and freckles, and occasionally poodles too.
Here's a place for keeping track of current submissions.
