So Fresh And So Clean

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

This week, we’ve got two Freshly Hatched essays by two stellar writers: PANK Magazine’s Roxane Gay, and Freerange’s very own momma bird, Mira Ptacin. Check them out by clicking HERE.

Three weeks from today (JULY 6, 2011), we’ll bring to the stage funnyman MYQ KAPLAN, poet JON SANDS, novelist DIANA SPECHLER, memoirist STACY PERSHALL, and essayist CHLOE CALDWELL. RSVP on Facebook, where you can also read more about these fancy folks!

Also! We are extremely thrilled to announce a feature reader for the August 6th, 2011 show: SETH FRIED. His stories have appeared in McSweeney’s, The Missouri Review, One Story, Tin House, and others. Seth recently shared with the world his brand new book, THE GREAT FRUSTRATION (Soft Skull Press) along with this guerilla-bookselling trailer, which is our newest most favorite thing ever. And check out our friend Jason Diamond’s post about Seth’s book over at Vol. 1 Brooklyn.
