New York City
Last month we hosted a little party for the literati in the town that gave us The New York School. Now we want to show you and tell you. 
At the invitation of Ace Hotel New York and Word Bookstore, over a dozen up-and-coming authors crafted short works in the second-person. Each story involves you, and a room. Below was the process for making these collaborative zines. 

You approach the grand study table at Ace Hotel on March 8 2014 and are handed a multi-sided die. Looking up, you notice 200 copies of 16 unique stories. Each page is 5.5” x 8.5”. The stacks are neat. Uniform. As instructed, you roll the die 8 times, each roll adding one work to your collection. You receive your final page. A friendly assistant hand stamps and staples it together. 

We had our turn rolling, adding, binding. If you missed out on the night, you can crib a downloadable PDF of ours here.


I loved being part of this. You can get my tiny story, and that of many other fabulous people, if you download the pdf.
