NYC LitMag Extravaganza

Come see me on Sunday, June 10, at the Housing Works Lit Mag Fair, snag some cheap-and-chic journals, and support a very worthy cause...


June 9th and 10th
All events are free and open to the public

New York, NY—The magazines may be little, but the weekend is big, big, big! It’s time once again for CLMP’s annual Lit Mag Marathon Weekend, a massive showcase of America’s diverse literary magazines and journals.


The Magathon
New York Public Library's DeWitt Wallace Periodicals Room, 5th Ave. at 42nd St.
Saturday, June 9th from 4–6:30 PM

The Magathon kicks off the weekend with a celebratory “marathon” reading. Over a dozen readers—editors representing journals of every size and style, from promising upstarts to the oldest, most established—will present favorite selections from their latest issues.

8th Annual Literary Magazine Fair at Housing Works
Housing Works Used Book Café, 126 Crosby Street in Soho
Sunday, June 10th from 12–5PM

Lit fiends can take home armfuls of lit mags discounted more than 50% at only $2 a copy! Choose from hundreds of magazines from all over the country and hobnob with many of the editors who’ll be there in person to meet and greet. Proceeds go to Housing Works, a nonprofit organization serving homeless people living with AIDS, and to The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, a nonprofit organization serving independent literary publishers.

The fair was founded in 2000 by editors Jenine Gordon Bockman of Literal Latte and Rebecca Wolff of Fence, and has connected thousands of readers and writers by raising the profile of exceptional literary publishers.

The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) was founded in 1967 to serve independent publishers of exceptional fiction, poetry and prose through technical assistance and advocacy. This program is made possible with support from the NEA, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs -- and is co-sponsored by the Humanities and Social Sciences Library of The New York Public Library, Housing Works Used Book Café, Fence and Literal Latte.
