You’re Invited: Okey-Panky Launch Party Tonight

This January, Electric Literature is launching Okey-Panky, an weekly online magazine of short, darkly comic, ironic, and experimental fiction, essay, poetry, and graphic narrative. Okey-Panky will publish something new every Monday morning, to confirm, at the start of each working week, your suspicion that life is strange, unfair, hilarious, and possibly meaningless. Like Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, Okey-Panky will be powered by tumblr, making it easy for you to spread our grimly amusing weltanschauung hither and yon.
Please join us to celebrate with us tonight at The Counting Room in Brooklyn. There will be brief readings by Alice Bolin, Anne Gisleson, and J. Robert Lennon. And we will be serving a special “Okey-Panky” Cocktail designed by A.J. Rathbun, author of Dark Spirits: 200 Classy Concoctions Starring Bourbon, Brandy, Scotch, Whiskey, Rum and More. More info here.
