Fold Appropriate Release Party in Berkeley

Mark and I are going to be in Berkeley this weekend (along with many other excellent folks). Come say hello!

Saturday August 18 at 7:30pm at Pegasus Books in downtown Berkeley (2349 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94704 * 510.649.1320)

Come celebrate the release of the first issue of FOLD MAGAZINE, Fold Appropriate Text, published by Insert Press. Featuring readings by Franklin Bruno, Guy Bennett, Teresa Carmody, Marcus Civin, Vanessa Place, Michael Smoler and more. Plus you can buy yourself a copy of this gorgeous literary journal at a discount (very exciting)!

If you’re going to be in San Francisco on Saturday, August 18 at 7:30pm, join us for another launch party at Pegasus Books in downtown Berkeley and hear readings by Franklin Bruno, K. Lorraine Graham, William Moor, Mathew Timmons, and Mark Wallace.

The emphasis of this issue is on the use of borrowed, stolen, plundered, reused, retooled and/or sampled texts to create literature and includes essays by Mark Wallace and Guy Bennett that discuss these methods. Our intent is to present the work of writers who use text which they did not originate and do not own or own only by virtue of appropriation.

Contributors to Fold Appropriate Text are: Harold Abramowitz, Guy Bennett, Franklin Bruno, Teresa Carmody, Marcus Civin, Katie Degentesh, Drew Gardner, Nada Gordon, K. Lorraine Graham, Jen Hofer, Mark Hoover, Mike Magee, Sharon Mesmer, K. Silem Mohammad, William Moor, Bruna Mori, JeffreyJoe Nelson, Vanessa Place, Dan Richert, Rod Smith, Michael Smoler, Mark Wallace
