This event is free and open to the public, and we will be serving sweets and refreshing beverages.

Pick up a copy of Bombay Gin 38.2: Front Range Writers & Artists for $12. We’ll also be selling bundles of back issues from $5 to $10, as well as chapbooks from the Kavyayantra Press.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Success

Hi, J’Lyn Chapman here. I’ll be with you for the next couple of weeks. On the agenda:

Christina Mengert
Gérard Gavarry
Omar Pérez
Margaret Randall
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.

Which leads me to add that you can currently buy it from us by emailing bgin@naropa.edu. It will also soon be for sale at SPD.

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.

Bombay Gin 38.1 Release Party: The Threshold Has Arrived

The latest issue of Bombay Gin, Issue 38.1 – “Threshold: Tenuous Proposition Of“, has arrived! You are invited to our release party in honor of this fantastic issue, so save the date:

When: Sunday, February 12, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Where: The Dark Horse Bar, 2922 Baseline Road, Boulder, Colorado – our party is in the bar upstairs!

Why: Because it’s an amazing issue, and writers know how to party. Enough said.

Since the issue was created with the idea of “companion” pieces in mind, navigating the threshold between writers and their poetry, prints, fiction, and interviews, and since the party is occuring so close to what editor-in-chief J’Lyn Chapman has amusingly dubbed “the national holiday of companionship,” we are hosting a special open mic reading for “companions”. So grab another writer, dancer, musician, etc. and email agoldberg@naropa.edu to sign up for a 5-minute slot at the reading! Bonus points if you wear red or pink.

We will also be featuring drink deals on a special concoction, the “Gin-sberg,” named by yours truly, in honor of our beloved Jack Kerouac School co-founder Allen Ginsberg and the name of our journal, whose origins are still a mystery to me. (If you can provide me with concrete evidence as to who named “Bombay Gin,” I will give you a free copy of the new issue.)

Don’t forget your ID, as the Dark Horse is a 21+ bar. And don’t forget some cash to get your hands on this extremely special issue, featuring rock star interviews, rock star prints, and rock star writing from Naropa’s own core and Summer Writing Program faculty.

Can’t wait to see you there!
