“A bouquet of delicious ink”: the debut of Stoneslide Corrective No. 1

The Stoneslide Corrective No. 1, the first-ever print edition of the self-same online journal and occasional book publisher, is now at long last available. The issue, featuring new fiction, satire, and humor together with some of the Corrective’s more popular content from the past several years, includes my short story “Poptimistic,” a late and bitter chapter in my on-going series of Coleman narratives (Brand New Moon, “Mule & Tourist,” etc.).

This new print edition comes just in time for the annual AWP writing conference in Minneapolis. To celebrate, the Stoneslide Corrective—in collaboration with Publication Studio Hudson and the South Minneapolis Society Library—will be hosting an off-site reading this Thursday, April 9th, at 6:30 pm. Amid the uncomplicated allure of books, beer, and food, I will be reading alongside Libby Cudmore, Joe Ponepinto, and Mark Wisniewski. The event is free and open to everyone.
