2016 has been a hell of a year
Nostrovia!‘s chapbook contest kicked things off w/ some beautiful writing & collaboration, moving into Issue #012 of Fuck Art, Let’s Dance (Issue #013 on the way in December !!) & the chapbooks’ debut @ the NYC Poetry Festival, our traveling bookstore hitting This Lil Lit Fest w/ Witch Craft Magazine + Spy Kids Review, busked New Orleans, Austin neon, Miami’s cafe con leche, before our car blew out in the Everglades. Oh, & I touched an gator.
& 2016’s Chapbooks are now available as free PDFs !!
To celebrate this year’s close & the seeds of 2017, we’ve planned an online reading event–think of it like a 2016 press / family celebration !! Last year’s went really well, & we think this year’s will be just as potent.
We’ll be gathering up 11/17/16 ~6-6:30pm PST :: RSVP @ Facebook
