Late last year a group of my friends and I decided to create a small press to provide a home for like-minded writers, poets, and assorted riffraff. Uncharacteristically, we followed through, eventually settling on the name The Corresponding Society (loosely after the 1790s British revolutionary organization).
Today, we officially release the first issue of our journal--Correspondence: A Journal of Letters. You may buy it by emailing one of us, coming to tonight's reading (Tuesday, July 15, at the KGB Bar on 4th and Bowery), or somehow finding us and demanding a copy in person. Whichever you do, it costs $8 (we don't make money off of this, all the proceeds go to pay off our creditors and fund the next issue). It includes work by 20 contributors--poems, stories, unclassifiable pieces, essays, and drama. There is also an essay by yours truly entitled "Revolution, Revelation, and the Task of Critique."
A worthwhile investment!
