This past Monday the tenth and final writer’s showcase was preformed in what will be the new kitchen of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers’ house. A lot has happened since this series started last August, and we have a whole new crew of friends of the Cp A who work hard and try harder.
Though the readings are over, the videos of those readings will continue to trickle in as the 5 year anniversary of the project approaches.
This is the first of three clips showing my good friend and collaborator, Dr. Tameka Cage Conley, reading at the 9th showcase last month.
Special thanks to the Heinz Endowment for supporting a little sketchy project like mine with their small arts initiative, and thank you to Bruin Roofing, who generously donated a portion of the supplies so that maybe some day soon I won’t have to put a tarp over the books in my bedroom.
Enjoy the video, try hard. Try harder.
I promise I will.
Gunner LaBuff reads like no one else. Take a peek.
From our 5th Writer’s showcase, a lecture on interstellar travel. Look for more videos in the upcoming days from our Writer’s Showcase series. Previous videos are still up on our site HERE.
Dan’s got some comics in this fat color (mostly) anthology. Check it.
I’ve got an 8 page story in this 300-some page beast of a collection. It’s exciting to be in a book with a crowd of artists that are so dramatically different from what I’m used to. Check out the trailer.
Nate and Dan are waging a land war against the MFA. So far it’s been rocky. Their first reading helped someone with MFA requirements. Let’s see how they’re feeling.
We’re doing a short little questionnaire to see if we’re on the right track with the grant we are writing. It’s about readings and if they are boring.
It a few seconds to complete, and we could really use the data.
Dear writers, artists, makers of good things, colleagues, and friends,
New Fraktur Arts Journal is pleased to announce that we are currently reading submissions of poetry, fiction and non-fiction for Issue #4.
Based out of the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, New Fraktur is a privately funded journal dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging writers and creative artists, focusing on—but by no means limited to—new and original thought. We will continually strive to represent the best work that is available to us, working in conjunction with artists in all media to foster an ongoing dialogue centered around what it is we do when we create.
All submissions are reviewed through our online submission manager, and complete guidelines may be found there. Although submissions are accepted year-round, the deadline for consideration for our summer issue is May 1.
Sample PDFs of the first three issues of the New Fraktur Arts Journal are available upon request—please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have featured work by Amra Brooks, Chris Carosi, Roxanne Carter, Eric de Jesus, Kari Larsen, Andy Martrich, Alex Rieser, Paolo Roy, Ben Roylance, and Joseph Trinkle, to name but a few. If you’d like to add your name to our contributors’ ranks, we’d love to see your work. Be sure to like New Fraktur Arts Journal on Facebook to follow the latest happenings.
We look forward to hearing from you!
All the best,
Editor,New Fraktur Arts Journal
