Celebration of Crayon Magazine #3

Reading at the Kelly Writers House, University of Pennsylvania, May 9, 2001

Featuring speakers: Andrew Levy, Chris Daniels, Andrew Mossin, and Deirdre Kovac

Crayon Magazine #3 Launch Party & Reading. Crayon #3, in a way similar to the premier festschrift for Jackson Mac Low's 75th birthday, is a book or anthology more than the usual issue of a literary magazine. In its pages are presented a surprising and unpredictable mix of prose essays and new poetry from many of the most brilliant poets publishing today, and one, Fernando Pessoa, who has been dead for some time now. Crayon #3, writes one of its admirers, is "beautiful, thoughtful, coherent, and has a kind of integrity I rarely see in any magazine. I can see the editors really thinking through what they want the magazine to stand for, to value, to care about."
