Assorted goodies.

Hi folks,

We are busy bees here at LIT, gearing up for production on LIT 15, which will (hopefully) be out in late winter/early spring. All current submissions will be considered for LIT 16, in case you were curious.

A few announcements:

LIT is pleased to announce its 2009 Pushcart Prize nominees, all of whom were published in issue 14, Spring 2008:

"Letter of Explanation to My Dead Arctic Explorer" by Paige Ackerson-Kiely
"Hat Dance Comma Mexican" by Heather Christle
"To Bed in a Broke Boat" by CJ Evans

"Bunkerisms" by Caren Beilin
"Brzezinski's Gambit" by Jamey Gallagher
"The Firebird" by Irina Reyn

We wish our nominees the best of luck! We're so proud to have published your work and wish we could have more than six nominations. Darn it all.


LIT will be in attendance at the 21st Annual Indie & Small Press Fair on December 6 & 7! Admission is FREE!

The fair, as always, is hosted by the New York Center for Independent Publishing and will take place at the General Society at 20 West 44th Street in NYC. Come for the one-of-a-kind events and stay to buy books and copies of lit mags for your stocking stuffers (and maybe a few for yourself).

And don't forget to visit the LIT table! We'll be in the grand company of other lit mags including Guernica, H.O.W., and more! And we'll be offering special discounts on copies of LIT, as well as subscriptions! Huzzah.

The fair takes place on Saturday, December 6th from 10 AM to 6 PM, and Sunday, December 7th from 11 AM to 5 PM. See their website for details: http://www.nycip.org/bookfair/
