The 2008 New School Chapbook Award Series reading will be held Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m., 66 W. 12th St., room 510. This is the culmination of the annual chapbook competition, open to all students who have completed their course work (three workshops, three literature seminars). Winners are selected by writers of national reputation who do not currently teach in the Graduate Writing Program. The award funds a 250-copy print run of the winning chapbook in each concentration, of which winners keep 50 copies. At the reading, winners will be introduced by the judges who selected their chapbook for publication. Readers include: Drew Haxby, Ghosts (fiction, selected by Lisa Shea), Beth Schwartzapfel, Tough as a Shoe (nonfiction, selected by Deborah Copaken Cogan), Christie Ann Reynolds, idiot heart (poetry, selected by Brenda Shaughnessy) and Caron A. Levis, Shall (writing for children, selected by Dan Elish). Please come out and celebrate with these program graduates, take home copies of their chapbooks and find out what it takes to write an award-winning chapbook!

Home Sweet Home
131 Chrystie Street, down the stairs
New York, NY
It's been a year (well, over a year) & we want to celebrate The Reading at Chrystie Street (better late than never)! & we need you there (real bad).
What we mean is:
Join us at Home Sweet Home at 131 Chrystie Street for a night of flash readings, excellent music, terrible dancing, &, we hope, lots of stuff we can talk about the next day.
This is a pretty damn awesome way to spend your Friday:
Party - Barbecue
Friday, October 2, 2009 at 6:30pm
381 Park Place #1
Hoa and Anselm will read. If it rains or is too cold, people will go inside, but otherwise, people will drink and BBQ in the yard. This will be a great time if you have an office job and want something to do on a Friday night!
To get to my house, which is about three blocks from the Brooklyn Museum: 2/3 to Grand Army Plaza; B/Q to 7th Ave; 4/5 to Franklin. Subways should run better on a Friday than they usually do on the weekends.
