Kooy in Stockholm!

Peauxdunquian Andrew Kooy has had his short story, “Perfection,” accepted for publication by the Stockholm Review of Literature. Some would say Andrew’s Viking-like good looks would make him a natural fit for such Scandinavian dreams, but this is, indeed, Andrew’s first European publication. When SRL‘s new issue goes live with Andrew’s story next week, we’ll post the link to our Facebook page.

Kooy with a publication; Choate to read at W&M

The writers and artists of Peauxdunque are dedicated to fighting, protecting, and expressing the strength of humanity, the love of our complex natures and collective worth, and the true freedoms of a people together. And we will never stop. With that …

We are all very excited to learn that Andrew Kooy will have his creative nonfiction piece, “Masochistic Tendencies,” published in Barely South Review in an upcoming issue! We will post a link on our Facebook page when the piece goes live.

And TODAY, at the Words and Music Conference in New Orleans, Emily Choate will be a selected reader (at 4 p.m. at the Hotel Monteleone), reading from her novel-in-progress. Don’t miss it!

New Publications forthcoming by Kooy and Bartlett

More publications are forthcoming from Peauxdunquians Andrew Kooy and Tad Bartlett.

Andrew‘s short story, “Big and Strong,” will appear in the “Saints”-themed issue of Montreal-based journal, Ricky’s Back Yard. The issue will be released in May 2016.

Tad‘s short story, “The Non-Artists,” will be published in The Mulberry Fork Review, an online journal run out of Vancouver, Glasgow, and Hanceville, Alabama. Their latest issue with Tad’s story will be released the week of April 11, 2016.

Finally, big news is the publication of Tad‘s novella, Marchers’ Season, by the Boston-based Novella-TNovella-T has come up with a new distribution and compensation model for the hard-to-publish novella form. They serialize novellas and distribute installments weekly to subscribers, splitting the subscription revenue with the authors. Marchers’ Season will appear in six installments beginning on April 18, 2016.

A Peaux/Real World!

PeauxRealThe New Orleans Fringe Fest has grown and evolved into the Faux/Real Festival, two and a half weeks of theater, music, dance, art, and writings on the edge. And this year they have given over their writers’ space, the Faux/Real Cafe, to the Peauxdunque Writers Alliance, on Wednesday night, November 11, from 6:30 to 9:30.

What happens when eight writers leave their personal podunks and come to New Orleans and start getting fo’ real? Come to the Faux/Real Cafe to find out! Maurice Carlos Ruffin, Cassie Pruyn, Zach Bartlett, Terri Shrum, Andrew Kooy, Emilie Staat, Tad Bartlett, and Caroline Goetze take the stage at 6:30 (along with a special spectral appearance by Susan Kagan), and the verbal slings and arrows don’t stop flying until 9:30. Cafe Faux/Real is a venue set up just for the Faux/Real Festival, where coffee and drinks and books will be for sale while the readings go. THIS READING IS FREE, though all Faux/Real events can be attended with a Faux/Real Button ($5 gets you an awesome collectors’ button that also happens to get you into more than two weeks of premier art out beyond the boundaries).

See you there! (At 2161 N. Rampart)
