MLA Chicago 2007

Published January 04, 2008 Posted By NewPages
NewPages had the honor of attending Modern Language Association convention in Chicago this past weekend (December 27-30). I love Chicago - even in the dead middle of winter. It is a friendly, easy-to-get-around-in city. Anytime we found ourselves a bit lost, we only needed to stop and ask anyone for directions. People are, as my brother says, "Midwesterners," and that is enough explanation for why they are so curteous and helpful.

I attended MLA in Chicago eight years ago, and it was a flashback to be walking the Hyatt halls again, surrounded by English folk (you know who you are). The conference is one of the best organized and tightly run events I have attended. There isn't a hall or corner without a person there to help attendees, which is essential for a convention spread across the river in two hotels.

The exhibitor floor was spacious and well organized. There were no major gaps from absent participants and plenty of room to enter in bookseller areas or stand in the aisleway without getting bumped. There was very little representation of small presses. I don't dare say "independent" presses, because as I was corrected by one publisher, many university presses are "independent." I'm still thinking about that one. I'm sure some non-univeristy affliated independents would be better posistioned to call these U presses brethren or not.

It's evident that larger presses, as we've known for some time, are delving more into the market of alternative titles, translations and speciality publications. Given as they have the money to enter such ventures with less of a loss to their overall budget should the return be moderate to even negative, this is not surprising to see. Nor is it cheap for them to attend the MLA - with exhibiting costs in the thousands, they really are hoping for several academic sales from this conference. I can see how it would make it difficult for small presses/publications to be well represented here, if at all. This is something NewPages is talking about being able to provide for next year's MLA, so interested presses/publications, contact Casey (new.pages-at-live.com).

There was also the individual sale aspect happening in this area, as writers pitched their book ideas to publishers, and publishers had signs on their tables with "calls for proposals." Another area the small presses might want to consider, given the type of acadmic authors in attendance.

Of the sessions we attended, while interesting, they really are geared toward their specific academic areas of interest and research. I was disappointed to sit through several more "paper lectures" than actual talks or discussions. I realize presenters need to present, but given the repeated cut-offs for Q&As, there is more conversation that begs for time. And that's really what this kind of convention is mostly about: like-minded and interested people being able to gather and have critcally thoughtful conversations that they might otherwise never have the opportunity to enjoy. I mean, how many people in one college department are interested in really talking about Wolfgan Iser or Margaret Fuller? It takes joining cross-national panelists who then gather a cross-national group of interested attendees to create exactly the kind of community necessary for these engagements.

The sessions were all extremely well attended - though we weren't there the last day to see the usual gotta-catch-a-plane drop off. For a conference that begins two days after a major holiday and in some pretty crappy weather for travel, numbers were great, and the experience enjoyable overall. Next year, though, MLA 2008 will be in San Francisco. I won't be complaining about the time of year to travel west for a little bit of sun and warmth!

For years, PEN American Center and its Members have worked tirelessly to advance literature, defend free expression, and foster an international community of writers. Not until recently have we had the means to share our concerted efforts.

2008 PEN LITERARY AWARDS
Call for Submissions

PEN American Center is currently accepting nominations and submissions for the 2008 Awards. Honors will be awarded in the categories of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, translation, and children’s literature.

PEN History
"The P.E.N. (poets, playwrights, essayists, editors, and novelists) American Center was founded in New York City in the spring of 1922. A year earlier in London, the first seed of building an international organization had been sown: Mrs. C. A. Dawson Scott, a Cornish novelist, and John Galsworthy, a well-known literary figure, together founded the first P.E.N. organization, and decided to call it "The P.E.N. Club." This Club was borne out of Mrs. Dawson Scott's "unshakable conviction that if the writers of the world could learn to stretch out their hands to each other, the nations of the world could learn in time to do the same." The idea could not have come at a more appropriate time, as bitter hatred existed between the nations following the First World War."

Anthology :: Queer Advice 3.15.08

Published December 27, 2007 Posted By NewPages
Second Person Queer
How We Lived Our Lives and How You Can Live Yours
Edited by Richard Labont and Lawrence Schimel
Publisher: Arsenal Pulp Press
Deadline: March 15, 2008

Seeking short, informed essays preferably between 1,000-2,000 words written in the second person (addressed to a "you") for an anthology of life advice from the GLBT community to the GLBT community.

Contributors are invited to approach the book in two ways:

1) "How-to" essays, which should be instructive in nature and have a title that begins "How To." No topic is out of bounds as long as it imparts a useful queer lesson to others. The essays can be profound or practical or humorous or heart-rending - or a blend of styles - but must be written in the second person (addressed to a "you").

2) Open Letters. Write a letter to someone specific - whether a public persona (celebrity, politician, author, etc.) or someone drawn from your personal
life (a teacher, a relative, a neighbour, whoever) - in which you either offer
advice or thank them for things you learned from them (their example). Willing to consider will be open letters to a child (relative, child of queer parents, etc.) whose sexuality is not yet defined, and to whom one is offering advice on how to deal with the pressures of heteronormative society while growing up. Note, however, that only one or two such pieces will be included in the book, so your chances of publication increase tremendously if you choose a more original subject.

Submission instructions:

1) Title the file with author's last name and story title in the file name: Surname-Title.doc (Do not simply title your piece SecondPersonQueer.com, at least not the version you submit to us.)
2) Include your name, your mailing address, your email address, and a bio WITHIN the .doc file with your piece, as submissions will be separated from emails to be read.
3) Submit your work by email, as an attachment in .doc format, to: secondpersonqueer-at-gmail.com

Payment: A small honorarium and one copy of the book will be paid. (Please note that payment is in Canadian funds.)

As an anthology for a Canadian publisher, preference will be given to
submissions from Canadian writers. But the anthology is open to submissions from all writers, and is actively interested in non-North American writers.

Punc't Art

Published December 26, 2007 Posted By NewPages
( ) Significant Aside
by Seymour Chwast

Sometimes old is new again, especially when discovered on the web. This is from a 2005 exhibit, but the images - still available on The Kean Review's web site - are timelessly fun. From HOW Design:

GRAMMAR RULES. PERIOD.

For David Schimmel, president and creative director of And Partners, one of the best parts of Punc't was getting to play client. It was like Christmas morning as each poster hit his desk and he uncovered another top designer's interpretation of a punctuation mark. "It was a delight to get them," he says. "I had a different response to each one." When all 24 creations were in hand, Schimmel put together an invitation for the Punc't reception and charity auction, as well as a catalog to showcase the posters.

These promotional pieces have a high-end, art gallery feel that's clean and sophisticated. And since Schimmel didn't want to favor one style over another, the invitation doesn't include any poster images at all. The catalog, on the other hand, makes the posters the hero, giving each work its own page to shine. "On the whole, paper promos aren't the memorable, savable, industry-influencing works that they were a decade or two ago," says judge Bryn Mooth. "This one is."

When it came time to arrange the posters within the catalog, Schimmel tried alphabetizing the pieces by each designer's last name and was pleasantly surprised at how well everything fell into place. As luck would have it, he'd assigned James Victore the period, giving his poster of a cowboy riding off into the sunset the perfect spot to declare, "The end."

POSTER DESIGNERS Seymour Chwast, Alexander Isley, Michael Bierut, Alexander Gelman, Stefan Sagmeister, Sam Potts, Aimee Sealfon-Eng, Woody Pirtle, Paula Scher, James Victore, Michael Ian Kaye, Carin Goldberg, David Schimmel, Scott Stowell, Steff Geissbuhler, Mirko Ilic, Chip Kidd, Steven Brower, Kent Hunter, Emily Oberman, Bonnie Siegler, Todd St. John, Robert Valentine, Marcos Chin, Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich

In Memoriam :: Sandy Taylor

Published December 21, 2007 Posted By NewPages
NewPages was saddened to hear the news that Alexander "Sandy" Taylor of Curbstone Press passed away Thursday evening, December 20, 2007, after suffering a major stroke. Sandy was a dear friend and long-time supporter and advisor to NewPages. We will miss him dearly. Our heartfelt support and strength to his family, friends, and literary colleagues.

The Summer of 2006, Jessica Powers interviewed Sandy for NewPages. Read the interview here.

From Cune Magazine:
Curbstone Press is a place where the writers of many cultures meet, united by a common concern to produce literature that deals with social realities and that promotes a respect for human rights, civil liberties, human dignity, and multicultural understanding. Curbstone seeks out the highest aesthetic expression of the dedication to human rights: poetry, stories, novels, testimonials, photography. Editorial integrity is combined with painstaking craft in the creation of books, books of passion and purpose.

Co-directors Alexander Taylor and Judy Doyle began the press when James Scully returned from Chile with a poetry manuscript. Taylor says, "We were fairly certain that a commercial house would not do the book, both because of its attack on the Pinochet regime and because it was not of standard length. We published it because we felt the poetry was stunning and because we felt it was necessary for the public to know what was really going on in Chile." Both Alexander and Judy have their roots in the Civil Rights Movement, the Anti-War Movement, and the Solidarity with Central America Movement, and a long interest in publishing. These two drives came together when they formed their publishing company.

Curbstone has become know as a preeminent source of translations of work by Latin American and Central American authors; however, one of their recent releases is a novel by Marnie Mueller about the injustice inflicted on Japanese Americans by their forced relocation during World War II, and it is a perfect example of their mission. Publishers Weekly called it "An engrossing character study." Alexander Taylor says, "It’s a story where no one person is either right or wrong, and it forces us to examine our own consciences."

2nd River Creates the Flow

Published December 21, 2007 Posted By NewPages
2River has just released the 12.2 (Winter 2008)issue of The 2River View, with new poems by Wendy Taylor Carlisle, Mark Cunningham, Lightsey Darst, DejaEarley, Taylor Graham, Mercedes Lawry, Patrick Leonard, Jo McDougall, BrentPallas, Emily Scudder, and Phibby Venable; and new art by Mitko Zhelezarov.

Available now online and in PDF format is Number 18 in the 2River Chapbook Series. In his collection of prose poems, Attractions, John Allman uses memory and speculation to bring together subjects as diverse as Einstein, Yugoslavia, chickens, drums, evergreens, and Christopher Columbus.

2nd River also hosts Muddy Bank: podcasts and commentaries and a "Favorite Poem Project" site which combine poetry and video: "Many of the videos here originated as assignments by creative writing students at St. Louis community College—Meramec. The Favorite Poem assignment is based on another in which the students compile an anthology of contemporary poetry. In the Favorite Poem Project, students present a poem from their anthology as their favorite poem. Anyone, however, is encouraged to follow the lead of these students and submit videos to the 2River Favorite Poem Project."

Great stuff for teachers and students as well as us general readers.

Images of War :: Greenfield-Sanders

Published December 21, 2007 Posted By NewPages
Bringing Home Iraq
By Nicolaus Mills
From Dissent Magazine

"When we think of photographs from the Second World War, we think of Robert Capa’s D-Day pictures of American infantrymen struggling to get ashore at Normandy. When we think of Vietnam War photographs, we think of Larry Burrows’s pictures of U. S. Marines bogged down in the mud and dense growth of the Vietnam highlands. Now comes Iraq, and this time the photographs that best capture the war are the pictures of Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, currently at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York in a show that opened on November 15 and that will run through December 22.

"Greenfield-Sanders’s Iraq photographs are already well known. They were made to accompany the HBO documentary, Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq, which James Gandolfini, the star of the Sopranos, produced. The documentary revolved around interviews that Gandolfini conducted with ten wounded soldiers, who talked about the Iraq war and their memories of “alive day,” the day they narrowly escaped being killed...

Interview :: Ana Castillo

Published December 18, 2007 Posted By NewPages
Writing in Netantla
LaVon Rice interviews author Ana Castillo

Excerpted from ColorLines
Nov/Dec 2007

"Yet another voice is weighing in on the fate of la frontera these days—but it’s a poet, not a pundit. In her latest novel, The Guardians, the multi-genre writer Ana Castillo takes a look at life on the U.S.-Mexico border with sensitivity and imagination—qualities often sorely lacking in the immigration debate today. Told through the eyes of several characters, The Guardians explores the politics of the border with irony, lyricism and desert-spare clarity... [read the rest here]"
