Armchair Shotgun @ Greenlight Bookstore

This past Friday Armchair/Shotgun’s editors premiered their second issue at Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn. It was an intimate reading, with poetry and fiction from contributors to the first two issues including Nate House, Alanna Bailey, and Zach White. (I might add here that our editor Travis Kurowski had a lovely short story in the first issue called “White.”)
Get a copy of A/S #2. The editors were heartfelt about their work and showed a clear sense of pride and humility in their undertaking, going so far as to assert that the purpose of publishing a magazine might be to get writers and readers together in a room. Setting the tone thus, it turned out to be one of the most genuine readings I’ve attended since moving to Brooklyn. I’m now a fan.
