Local Knowledge Magazine Issue #8

Local Knowledge Magazine Issue #8

September 30 @ 7:00 pm

Launch Party

Howl! Happening and Local Knowledge Press invite you to the release party for Local Knowledge #8. A journal of art and literature, the magazine brings together poets, prose writers (fiction and non-fiction), and artists to foster conversation, exploration of the creative flow, real dialogue, and direct experience. 

Join founder and editor-in-chief Sanjay Agnihotri, creative director Tom Haynes, and the contributors to celebrate issue #8 that includes two special portfolio sections: a remembrance of Jonas Mekas with contributions from Hollis Melton, Bradley Eros, Nicole Peyrafitte, Robert Kelly, Vyt Bakaitis, Kimberly Lyons, and Norman MacAfee. The second special portfolio features the work of the late poet Steve Dalachinsky with an introduction by Yuko Otomo.

Other issue contributors include Peter Valente, Murat Nemet-Nejat, Ron Kolm, Martha King, Elinor Nauen, James Ruggia, Steve Levine, Charles Borkhuis, Amy Barone, Joel Allegretti, Mark Weber, Francine Fleischer, Steve Miller, Sally Davies, and Tom Haynes.

As the name implies, Local Knowledge offers an alternative to the disconnect of the homogenized creative-writing scene. The magazine proposes all knowledge is local and spreads out from the life and language of people who lead their lives as both artists and individuals who struggle with the process of daily experience.
