We introduced Digging Through The Fat to a lovely crowd of literary lovers at the beautiful New York Society Library. Tobias Carroll, Lauren Hilger, and Bud Smith all gave stellar readings. I was overwhelmed with the response we received for the journal and for these amazing people’s words. Thank you so much to Carolyn Waters, Head Librarian at The New York Society Library for inviting Digging to participate. Much love to Guernica, especially publisher, Katherine Rowland, editors: Raluca Albu and Meara Sharma, and Guernica’s special guests: Carmen Maria Machado and Ann Neumann. It was a great night for all involved.
2016 Editor’s Choice: Eileen Malone (fiction) and Lynne McEniry (poetry).
Happy Holidays from all of us at Digging Through The Fat!
