LIT LINKS: Party Like A Writer (5/17/13)

In case you missed it, here’s what happened this week at Electric Literature and elsewhere…

We had cause for great celebration: The Paris Review guest editedRecommended Reading, bequeathing unto us the insight that “Most people have had anal sex. Don’t look so surprised.”

We learned that E. E. Cummings was literally the first person to party.

The Awl gave us advice on how to stay friends with struggling writers.

The Daily News revealed that book clubs can be fun. And topless.

Juliet Escoria gave us tips on living like a writer and how to carefully put your fist through a wall.

If you’re in Brooklyn this weekend, keep the party going with Lit Crawl on Saturday and a marathon poetry reading for the Brooklyn Bridge’s birthday on Sunday.

If you’re not in Brooklyn, bring the party with you with an Electric Literature flask.


–Benjamin Samuel is the co-editor of Electric Literature. The last time he partied like a writer, he woke up with the taste of tweed in his mouth. Find him on Twitter.
