poeticsapp:

Announcing NYCorrespondence, an international call for mail art, using the postcard function in the Poetics visual poetry app for iPhone.  

As part of National Poetry Month, we invite you to create and submit a visual poem in the form of a physically mailed postcard, sent straight out of the Poetics app to Kickstarter’s new gallery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

We’ll be displaying the top postcards in a set of rotating postcard racks, where any visitor to the gallery can take home any postcard found in the rack.  

If you’re open to begin a correspondence with whoever finds your postcard, please include contact information on the back.  Or leave it out as an anonymous, chance donation of mail art.  

The Poetics app is free this month on the App Store, and postcards cost $1.99 sent from anywhere in the world.

An example of one of the postcards and rack display is shown above; each card is a traditional, 4”X6” print on glossy card stock.

For context on this project, please check out:
Artwork leading up to Poetics »

The Poetics app project was successfully Kickstarted at the start of 2012.  

We look forward to receive your cards.

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE is out today! 
If you’re in Richmond VA, I hope you’ll come out to my signing tonight at Chesterfield Town Center Barnes & Noble, 7pm. Homemade brownies! Bottled water! (my mom is insisting on buying bottled waters for our guests bc you can’t serve brownies without water apparently!) And tomorrow, I hit North Carolina— Quail Ridge bookstore in Raleigh at 7pm, and Flyleaf bookstore with the one and only SARAH DESSEN (!) on Thursday at 7! 

Ok, SERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY? If you aren’t totally smitten with Jenny Han, you’re a heartless creature. Anyone who uses a Beyonce & Kelly Rowland .gif to celebrate the publication of their wonderful YA novel is a friend of ours. See y’all on Thursday! First 40 folks get a goodie bag (hint: there’s nail polish in it). -Linnie

Months and months and months, and then a week ago I submitted the final draft of the book I’ve been working on, and this morning, it goes into production. Relieved to say: Hammer Head: The Making of a Carpenter will be out early next year from W.W. Norton.

emilybooks:

Beth Lisick is the undisputed master of the small, strange personal story, but in this collection she transcends punchlines and gets real. Yokohama Threeway is a lot weirder and, we think, even awesomer than her earlier collections of funny anecdotes.  Lisick has a knack for telling a story quickly and then getting out, just stopping, before drawing any fake-profound conclusions. Shitty jobs, the Bay Area’s influx of rich assholes, Stephen Elliot, the humiliations of childhood,  an alcoholic coworker, the ex-boyfriend who wanted to teach her how to wash her ass properly — no one is spared in these subtle, perfectly rendered, hilarious and true snapshots of the artist’s life. 
"This book is fucking great."—Kathleen Hanna

"'Collective' or otherwise, I think art, as a pursuit, has a place and purpose in the 'public' sphere. There are few other known forces in the world that can provide such comfort, solace, provocation, humility, inspiration, arousal, wonder, and self-discovery."

This week, writer and artist Nathaniel Bellows answers my PEN Ten. (via luxlotus)
