Well folks, it’s finally here. The first issue of The 22 in all it’s beautiful, gritty, hard wonness and I for one am glad to see it foisted upon the world. For the moment it is available to view on ISSUU and this evening I’ll have everything embedded so the tentacles of publication stretch far and wide. There are some amazing artists in here, and their words and pictures are now all yours. Over the next couple of months I’ll be shining a spotlight on each of these artists and telling you the story of why the were chosen to be one of the 22.(Look for a special post tomorrow morning as well, introducing you to the 22.)
Lots of very cool things coming up in the following months as well, including video interviews and some really terrific events involving the contributors.
Thanks again to all the folks that made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you…and you….and definitely you.

We hosted our first two events this past weekend and boy did we have fun!
Although things were a bit haphazard after a great game of musical venue’s we were thrilled to see all of you in the same room.
We hope you enjoyed yourselves and that you will come visit the future events we will be hosting throughout the year (including an upcoming reading on May 15th with one of 2011’s “Discovery”/Boston Review Poetry Prize winners!)
In the meantime all the photos are up online and video (and very likely more photos) will be coming very soon!
VIEW PHOTOS HERE.
AND if you haven’t seen it yet, check out the state of things to come with a preview for VOL 1!
THANK YOU ALL!
