Hi, J’Lyn Chapman here. I’ll be with you for the next couple of weeks. On the agenda:
And another book giveaway: Kristen Kaschock’s Sleight.
But first off: our release party for issue 38.1 was a success. The Dark Horse is indeed an amazing space, and the men’s bathroom, which I guess I was using, looks just like a women’s bathroom; we invented a very pink and tasty drink called the Gin-s-berg* (alternatively, the Gin-sberg); we wrote an exquisite-corpse poem that got a lot of laughs when Eric Fischman read it and, if I didn’t throw it away, will be posted here; we had 11 readers, some rocks, rose petals, and sparkles; and we sold a bunch of the new issue. Which is no big surprise. The issue is fantastic and so are the people who bought it.
Are you going to the AWP this year in Chicago? We’ll have a small table there, so please stop by and get a copy of the newest issue as well as some back issues.
If you attended the release party last night: Thank you. We appreciate your support.
* gin, seven-up, grenadine. We want it to be famous, so please ask your local bartender for it by name.
