Just yesterday, The Guardian outlined how Brooklyn had become a “writers’ mecca” through the ages. While the feature offers a gimlet-eyed glimpse into Brooklyn’s literary scene, it’s representative of a much more exciting evolution—one in which some of New York City’s finest and most ambitious literary publications are now increasingly based out of Brooklyn. So what could happen if you got editors from some of these journals together in a room, gave them wine, and asked them to talk about the craft of assembling a literary journal and the economics associated with such an undertaking? Well, we were curious too and that’s why we’re happy to be taking part in A Night With Brooklyn Indie Lit Mags, moderated by the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses. Other participating magazines include A Public Space, Recommended Reading, SET, Slice, and Tin House. Learn more about the publications here.
A Night With Brooklyn Indie Lit Mags will be held at at powerHouse ARENA (37 Main Street; A, C trains to High Street, F train to York Street, 2, 3 trains to Clark Street) in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn on Wednesday, July 18, 2012.
