Two Announcements and an Announcement

1. The Corresponding Society Reads In Brooklyn

If this were The New York Times, the title of this announcement would be “A Reading Grows In Brooklyn.” Anyway: we’re entirely pleased to announce that we’ll be holding a reading on the campus of The Pratt Institute in the verdant Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn (that’s near the Clinton-Washington stop on the G train). The reading is open to the public and will occur in the Alumni Reading Room of the Institute’s quite beautiful library. Copies of the first issue will be available for purchase. Please refer to Pratt’s website for detailed directions, or contact us via email. Here’s the rundown:

Reading at the Pratt Institute
200 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn
Tuesday, October 7th at 5pm
Matthew Daniel
Chanelle Bergeron
Robert Snyderman
Lonely Christopher
Adrian Shirk
Christopher Sweeney

2. Call for Submissions

Queerly enough, we’re more or less on schedule for our second issue of Correspondence. One of the things that means is that we’re currently accepting submissions. We’re mainly looking for poetry, short fiction, drama, and critical essays (though, as evidenced by Tallon’s work in the first issue, we’re also interested in hybrid pieces). Please email us your submission (thecorrespondingsociety [at] in the form of a single, clearly labeled .doc file; you are also encouraged to include a short personal statement. Ten to twenty manuscript pages is our standard length per author. The official deadline is October 1st.

3. From Our Friends at Small Anchor Press
