Alt Lit Press: i greet you at the beginning of a great career

amateurisms:

steve roggenbuck’s book i am like october when i am dead ends with the line:

Mellow Pages Library in Brooklyn is THE IRL DREAM. They have the best books. The coolest people. The most intimate readings. And it has all been Free for the last however many months. 

We had our Summer Reading there in August and it was the Best Night in Shabby Doll House History. 

They have SO MANY BOOKS BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED IN SHABBY DOLL HOUSE

And, they have so many books period. So many zines and chapbooks and weird things that you can’t find anywhere else. They are doing something Special and Important. And honestly, I would never say that if I didn’t believe it 100%.

Look at the video. Look how many people are getting excited about Literature. We are all screaming!

But the point is, Matt & Jacob (who were both included in our FALL issue) have paid for all of it themselves so far. They have put so much of their time and money into this project, and are now asking for a little help in the form of fundraising, with this Indiegogo campaign.

SO, if you have money that you do not need and you want to support independent literature, please consider donating to Mellow Pages!

We think it would be a very good decision to give to them.

It’s
Dark
Out there
.
Rain tapping on
My window.
I grew up in
This bedroom
But tonight I
Am sick,
Feverish,
Grown-up,
Thinking of
Old times,
Exes,
Arguments,
Sweating
Misplaced
Guilt.

It’s
Dark
In here.

Rain tapping on
My window.
I shake and
Roll over,
I talk to

"People love consuming female imagery online. Porn is so dominant. So I think a lot of women want to just hide themselves, to not deal with having their bodies be scrutinized. While on the other hand, other women play to this romanticized online version of themselves to get attention and often find themselves giving off this stereotypical sexy female vibe in order to do so. So it is just tricky figuring out how you, as a female artist, fit into that landscape. I’m constantly battling with that."
