FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BUSHWICK OPEN PAGES 2011
CELEBRATES INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING IN BROOKLYN

June 4th-June 5th, 2011, Brooklyn, NY–For a decade now, Brooklyn has been a fulcrum of both DIY ethos and literary exploration. To celebrate this tradition, Arts in Bushwick and Slice magazine present the second annual Bushwick Open Pages, June 4th and 5th, from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The festival aims to present a non-hierarchical cross-section of independent publishing.
Organizations across strata and media have been invited to participate, including literary journals, online publications, zines, individual letterpress publishers, brick-and-mortar booksellers, and more. Confirmed participants include BOMB, n+1, Red Lemonade, Gigantic, A Public Space, Birdsong, Slice, Lungfull!, W+G News and Arts, Fiction Circus and Hyperallergic.com.

In addition to booths dedicated to independent publishing organizations, panels on Saturday and Sunday will explore aspects of building a strong DIY publishing ethos. The panels are:

Saturday, June 4th at 3 p.m.
PUBLISHING AND LITERARY COMMUNITY
Richard Nash (Cursor/Red Lemonade); Saba Afshar (Slice magazine/Brooklyn Writers’ Conference); Tobias Carroll (Volume 1 Brooklyn/The Scowl)

Sunday, June 5th at 3 p.m.
ARTS WRITING IN NEW MEDIA: WHAT WE DO—CAN DO—SHOULD DO
Paddy Johnson (Art Fag City); Hrag Vartanian (Hyperallergic); Marina Galperina (AnimalNY)

The festival is hosted by duckduck, at 161 Montrose Ave. (near Graham Ave.), off the Montrose Ave. L; this is also the Montrose hub for Bushwick Open Studios. Discounts on Jameson whiskey will also be offered on Saturday evening.
