NYC’s KGB Bar to Host Our NYC Launch

Exciting news! We’ve just gotten official confirmation that the KGB Bar will host Killing the Angel magazine’s New York City launch event. On December 18, 2012, from 7-9 PM, we’ll host a launch/reading event at the legendary East Village establishment where literary superstars regularly appear.

We’ll post more information as it gets closer. For now, though, book the date in your calendar! We hope to see you all there!

In related news, copies of Issue 1 shipped to us today and will arrive by Monday. We can’t wait to send them out to our backers, authors, and, hopefully, our audience of readers!

A Sneak Peek

Our first issue is in production–behold a sneak peek of the proofs! Sit tight… in a few weeks, the finished product will be available for your enjoyment!

New Look

We thought it might be a good idea to change the look of KTA’s website.  Hopefully you’ll find this format a little more user-friendly!

It’s been a busy month as we’ve been putting together the first issue of the magazine.  There are some aspects of publication and production that have been rewarding and amazing in more ways than we ever thought possible.  We can’t wait for the final product to become a tangible reality that we can share with you!

In the meantime, we thought you’d enjoy today’s “poem of the day” from John Montague.  Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

by John Montague
for Elizabeth

Poetry is a weapon, and should be used,
though not in the crudity of violence.
It is a prayer before an unknown altar,
a spell to bless the silence.

There is a music beyond all this,
beyond all forms of grievance,
where anger lays its muzzle down
into the lap of silence.

Or some butterfly script,
fathomed only by the other,
as supple fingers draw
a silent message from the tangible.

Blogging Woolf

We were delighted to find out that Blogging Woolf, a blog dedicated to “Virginia Woolf and her circle, past and present,” recently ran a blurb on Killing the Angel magazine.  Check it out here!

Blogging Woolf is an amazing resource for any Woolfian.  We were particularly interested in the opportunities advertised for Woolf-centered writing and study.  Great stuff.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who submitted for our first issue!  Submissions for the first issue are now officially closed.  We’ll let everyone officially know their submission status within the month or so.  Thanks so much for your interest, your patience, your enthusiasm, and most of all, your awesome writing!!  We are truly bowled over by the talent we’ve seen and can’t wait to start putting the magazine together!

Paris Bound!

If inspiration were an establishment, that establishment would be Shakespeare and Company (read about the history of our love for this bookstore here and here).  Last week, we received notification that Killing the Angel will be on the shelves of Shakespeare and Company this summer.  There are no words.

Getting the Word Out

This is a beautiful sight!  We posted this flyer at a coffeeshop in Ridgewood, NJ that promotes artistry and creativity.  Two days later, almost all the tear-offs were gone!  So happy that word of Killing the Angel is spreading!
