You Give Me Growing Pains, Theodore Huxtable

A 80's-themed reading? Wish granted. Chicagoans, and those passing through, do stop in at Black Rock Bar (3614 N Damen) on Wednesday, March 4th at 8pm as the regular Recroom series goes 80's for "You Give Me Growing Pains, Theodore Huxtable", with readings by Jac Jemc, Zach Plague, Lindsay Hunter, Mary Hamilton, Tobias Amadon Bengelsdorf, Nicolette Bond, Meg Barboza, Allison Gruber, and Erin Teegarden.


March is Small Press Month

March, as the title of this post implies, is Small Press Month. Get some small press love on the event's website here, including this fine list of things to do to support small press.


6S2, Word Riot News, AWP/Chicago

What with the AWP circus being in Chicago this week, Pilcrow went out and represented last night at the Dzanc/OV/Keyhole soiree last night. Fabulous time of course.

Friend of Pilcrow, Six Sentences has news: The authors included in Six Sentences, Volume 2 anthology have just been announced, and a piece of mine is included, along with a few friends of Pilcrow: So New and Word Riot author David Gianatasio, Heather Leet, Shelly Rae Rich and Jason Jordan. Most excellent news. Catch that in March. And, apparently, word on the street anyway, is that there are more author names that'll be announced for special sections of the book, so that's fun.

Speaking of Word Riot, chatted recently with WR's Jackie Corley about World Takes by Timmy Waldron (out soon) and Midnight Picnic by Nick Antosca (out in days, but pre-order is up now). Eyes peeled for those.
