Coming very soon: apt

It’s been eight months since the last issue of apt. With our first print issue due out in the next few weeks, we wanted to share a little bit of our progress. The print issue has nearly twenty contributors and runs about 130 pages. We’ve been feeding it a steady diet of granulated pulp magazines from the 60s and shouting intermittent bits of encouragement while watching it run laps. While it likes to think of itself as “issue one,” we like to remind it that it’s actually “issue twenty-five,” and to wipe that smug look off its face. That said, we’d like you to see its face. Just remember, no sudden movements and try to avoid eye contact.

Welcome to the New Aforementioned Website

More content is surely on its way, but for now, all of the necessary bits are here. Check out the menu on the right for more information about us, upcoming events and our publications.

Other goings-on:

The first print issue of apt will be out in January. A new website is forthcoming there as well.

The next installment of Literary Firsts is on January 24th, 2011. More details at

Happy holidays and all that,

New AP website in progress

Thanks for stopping by. Please hang in there while we’re rebuilding the site in WordPress. Switching to the WP platform will allow for easier and more frequent updates, more content, and more interactivity.
