the first time i’ll be reading in a cave. in an old zoo. should be a blast.
Following Los Angeles poet and literary activist Jessica Ceballos to a market in Highland Park, the author, an independent publisher, experiences the future right now.
Jessica Ceballos is doing amazing work, using poetry to give her community an opportunity to speak and to be heard.
My new post on the Literary Alchemy column. It’s a big shout out to my friend Jessica Ceballos, a fabulous poet, music maker, and activist.
The work she is doing with various readings should be lauded, but for me, the one that stands out is Poesia Para La Gente.
Please read and share and get to know Jessica. Remarkable and powerful work. She needs to be celebrated and supported by all of us in the literary community.
gonna be dope.
This week’s installment of Chiwan Choi’s Literary Alchemy column. It’s a weekly check in from our co-founder/publisher about the day to day goals, activities, struggles and other shenanigans that Writ Large Press is involved in.
Here, he writes a bit about the LA Times Festival of Books, our new mobile bookstore, and how everything we are doing is part of an activist mentality:It’s a time of activist introspection for the independent publisher, a time to change everything, be public about a developing mission statement, and be bold in approaching the future.
