First off, thank you to everyone who sent in submissions to the second issue if End of 83! We will be reading over the next coming weeks and hope to have our second issue out late this summer!

We will also be having our next all day retreat on Sunday, August 2 at LitMore from 11am – 6pm.

Live From My Mother’s Basement Pilot is Up!

The pilot episode of our podcast, Live From My Mother’s Basement, is up! Take a listen on soundcloud.

Also find it on facebook and the iTunes store.

And in case you’re wondering what it’s about…  Simone Addakari is a well educated but directionless twenty something, trying to find a place in the world. Inspired by the old radio plays her father played for her as a child and a lifetime of NPR, she decides to launch her own radio show.  Produced in her mother’s basement, the show includes news stories and interviews from around her town, reported on by various friends, and creative pieces from town residents.

But also it talks about the weather and the existential crisis of creating an online dating profile.
