Tucked in the end of local poet and Egen Award winner Sandra Beasley‘s report from a recent reading is this interesting tidbit: “She will be debuting a column in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine on Sunday, July 13, as part of a new feature called ‘The XX Files.'” Over at C.M. Mayo’s blog, Beasley fills out the story: “In mid-July I will be making a foray into the world of prose writing when my column, “The Art of the Bluff,” appears in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine. This new feature in the magazine, called “The XX Files,” will be comprise short essays written by a rotating set of urban, female writers.”

The Post’s Web site has a chat page for the feature ready to roll.
