Welcome to Witty Partition
sails into your inbox and onto your screen with flash fiction in one pocket, Romanian poetry in the other--young, passionate, dangerous.
sends flyers of poetry: Greene, Bourbeau, Fischer, Robertson.
calls through the megaphone: the canonization of Steve Cannon, the Bard in Berkeley, the astronomy of Henrietta Leavitt, Lorca in Cuba, Potter’s Field in Washington Square Park.
plays Rai music with Cheb Khaled.
showers excerpts from A Blind Man Crazy for Color, celebrates Ngugi wa Thiong'o.
spreads rumors of remarkable reads--Nostalgia, Rotura, The Tiller of Waters, Life Went on Anyway, and still other summer delights.
Welcome to Issue Seventeen, which shares with that wild teenage year a bountiful vivacity and exuberance--we even have Chris Sawyer-Lauçanno’s brief stint as a caddie at about the same age in our serialization of his memoir Becoming. Not to mention evocative images in our InSights and Colophon.
And akin to the liminal age of 17, we have news of an upcoming transformation. By the next issue, Witty Partition will transmogrify into Cable Street--new moniker, same superlative content.
But now 17 awaits—wishing you boisterous reading!
