Our Plastron Has Several New Features

Dear Pixels,

First of all, Issue No. 2 is shaping up nicely. It'll be out at the end of May. Check back soon for Assignment 2 revamp.


Second of all, peep this:

We like what Dzanc* does, and want to support it. For those of you who don't know, Dzanc is a non-profit publisher who also creates and supports various writer-and-writing-and-small-press/pub bear-hugging initiatives and programs. They're also really nice.

Their Best of the Web 2010 is now available for purchase, and looks like the ripest berry in the bramble.

Click on the banner above for more information.


Third, the last of all, we're thinking through a print project. Top secret! More this summer, when we're older and wiser.

In the rain everything shines...and other would-be pop ballad lyrics, fondly,

Exploded Swan 041410

Last evening the Exploding Swan reading series, curated by Heather Overby, killed it. We're breathless from the Zachary Schomburg/The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra collaboration. Images of blood spatter fold in on themselves on the violin-plucked mobius strip in our heads this morning. Anton Disclafani read of southeastern twins and snakes and oranges, while Jenny Mueller's poems were wry and by turns glossy and spiny (sometimes both!). Jaffa Aharonov (SA 1!) provided intermission tunes of such siren proportions that everyone forgot to intermission. The next ES is May 21st-ish. Stay tuned for updates on that.

About that CROWDMAP...

We are unsurprised, in our heart of hearts, that Assignment 2: CROWDMAP yielded so few responses as not to be viable in the current prompt form. So: We're taking a step back, we're re-imagining, re-conceptualizing, re-scrambling our tiny thoughts. Stay tuned for a phoenix-new incarnation of dear old CROWDMAP. We'll be wanting your participation, of course.

Thanks, too, to the few who did submit. We appreciate your game entities in the face of general bewilderment.

Fitting in Some Dank Cranny of Your Crowd-Sourced Atrium,

Super Arrow

P.S. Have fun at AWP, if you're elevating in Denver (5,280 ft. above sea level) this fine week. Wave hello to the sky for us! We'll be in St. Louis (466 ft. above sea level), in that cranny, dreaming of panels and paneling, like usual.

Closure 2

The reading period for Issue 2 has come to an ecstatic end. Thank you to all who submitted -- look for a response soon, if you haven't yet received one.

Please embrace this spring day forcefully, wherever you are.

With Sincerity So Enveloping You Might Not Be Able to Breathe for a Second,

Super Arrow
