More Kudos to Eastern Point Lit House
Adding to Joey’s breaking news post of earlier today–here’s the press release from Eastern Point Lit House:
We’re extremely excited to announce that we have signed a lease for 261 Main Street in downtown Gloucester, Massachusetts, a physical home for Eastern Point Lit House & Press. We’re right next door to Alexandra’s Bread, which is of course awesome!
So what is Eastern Point Lit House hoping to accomplish? Anything we can dream up to enliven and support the literary arts on Cape Ann and beyond. In shop we’ll have books we’ve published, as well as those written and published by other folks making incredibly beautiful small press, limited run, and independent books. The kind that you must hold in your hands because they are so unique and gorgeous–books not typically sold in regular book stores. We’ll offer workshops for all ages and abilities led by some fantastic writers and teachers, proofreading and editing services (a public editor for anything from novel manuscripts to press releases and business letters), writing supplies, poetry postcards, cool literary themed t-shirts, and more. We’ll also feature kick ass narrative art and readings by some of today’s most exciting writers. Think of it as a word gallery of sorts, where the written word is the art. Basically we want to make literature even more fun right here in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Literary Cape Ann, y’all. Write by the Sea. Soft opening in a few weeks, and then a big grand opening celebration after that. Dates and more details coming soon. Keep an eye on our social media feeds on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to get the latest word.
Our monthly Writer’s Book Club will continue at Duckworth’s Bistrot.
