Monday Memo

News December 3, 2018

This week, we're feeling grateful for the recognition A Public Space received this year, and for all of the luminaries in our circle:
  • Jamel Brinkley, who was first published in A Public Space and a finalist for this year's National Book Award in fiction for his debut, A Lucky Man (Graywolf Press + A Public Space), was featured in T Magazine's portfolio on "Black Male Writers for Our Time."
  • Contributor Eileen Myles ("Each Day I Get Up" in APS No. 20), who has a new show of photographs, entitled poems, on exhibition at Bridget Donahue gallery in New York (pictured), and Artsy has the full story.
  • We are sending warm congratulations to Paris for friend of A Public Space Haydée Touitou, cofounder of the Skirt Chronicles magazine, who received the Editor of the Year prize at the Stack Awards 2018.
  • And also to Glory Edim, currently touring in support of her Well-Read Black Girl anthology. We were so thrilled to be a part of the second annual Well-Read Black Girl Festival and to share APS No. 23, in which Kathleen Collins first appeared.
  • And in case you missed it, Brigid Hughes, our founding editor, was profiled at Literary Hub and interview at Bookstr recently.
