Featherproof Newsletter: February 3
Oh holy Cheeto Jesus—how the hell are you? We mean that for real. 'Cuz the latest in a long line of oppressors have wasted no time here, have they? And now we're smack dab in the middle of the War on Psychic Warfare to End All War Instead of Ending the World.
Don't forget that we are many, and you are not alone! But also don't forget that the many are counting on you to show up… We're in this for the long haul if you are, friends. And if you need to communicate with a real, live human being: we're here.
Actual Good News (i.e., In No Way Fake):
On February 14, we'll be officially releasing our newest book: Leyna Krow's I'm Fine, But You Appear to Be Sinking.
Shawn Vestal has described these stories as "bound by a crackling wit, an inventive vitality, a laser eye for the silent currents between people, and a sneaky emotional power."
Following in the footsteps of our debut collections from Amelia Gray and Lindsay Hunter, we're proud to now introduce you to another promising young writer.
Get I'm Fine, But You Appear to Be Sinking direct from us now, before it's available anywhere else!
The New York Times Magazine has said "Everyone on every coast and in between reads MAKE because it’s smart and cool and thoughtful and stylish and kind."
To celebrate MAKE Magazine's 10th anniversary, we're pleased to present the anthology collection MAKE X: A Decade of Literary Art.
More than a "best of," these are carefully curated selections of writing & art, featuring some of yer all-time favorite people: Eula Biss, Lily Hoang, Lindsay Hunter, Maggie Nelson, Jac Jemc, Tim Kinsella, Kathleen Rooney, Mahmoud Saeed, Valeria Luiselli, Kate Zambreno, and many, many more.
MAKE X will be officially released March 14, but you can get a copy from us right now!
Yeah, We Don't Know Either
It pains us to think about what sort of abomination we'll have to protest next week, but if you're in the nation's capital February 8–11, we will be, too.
After you inform the new administration personally about what you think of their machinations, come see us at the AWP Conference & Bookfair in the Washington Convention Center. We'll be at booth #250 with our good friends from Curbside Splendor.
If you can't make the bookfair, shake a tailfeather over to Petworth Citizen (829 Upshur St. NW) for the AWP Small Press Party on Saturday, February 11, at 7pm. No readings. Just booze & camaraderie & revivification. Hope to see you there.
With love, solidarity, and an itch we're sure as shit gonna scratch,
Tim & Jason & Sammi
