About this project
(quick-note: the green face/sketch above is by Numa Amun, a Canadian artist, and may be used as the cover of our next issue)
IMPORTANT UPDATE: EVERY BACKER OF OUR PROJECT WILL GET OUR AWESOME CUSTOM POSTCARDS, SENT TO YOUR DOOR PRE-STAMPED FOR YOU TO SEND TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE OR HATE.
It is low-brow if you read it that way, it is high-brow if you read it that way. We want to hijack your internal narrative, get you out of your life for a bit and into something else.
- Our "mission statement" which opens every issue of theNewerYork reads:
- Man's a strange animal, and makes strange use
- Of his own nature, and the various arts,
- And likes particularly to produce
- Some new experiment to show his parts;
- This is the age of oddities let loose.
This is our experiment. We publish lists, fictional glossaries, internet forums, classified ads, post-cards, love letters, aphorisms, fragments, punctuationless stories, upside down stories, and other absurdities.
Our first issue, which was funded on Kickstarter, turned out wonderful, our second issue will be exponentially better. Having established a strong distribution base in independent bookstores and boutiques in New York City, Los Angeles, and Paris (see our website for details) as well as a good relationship with writers and printers, this next issue will have higher quality writing, higher quality art, and twice the amount of narratives.
For submissions we place ads in newspapers, online, in cafes, with stickers, over Twitter and also search through short fiction blogs. Our writers and artists come from all over the world.
We will print about 2000 copies total, depending on pricing. Estimated cost, $5,700. The rest of the money will be used to pay for some rights to art, shipping rewards, design costs and LAUNCHING A NEW WEBSITE.
Ask us any questions you might have. We thank you very much for your continued support and hope you love the mag.
The book is printed by Brio Books in Minneapolis and the e-book is made using Folium Book Studio and is sold through Paypal, Amazon, and Google.
