Announcement of Partnership!

December 3, 2015


We are pleased to announce our merge with the Poetry Society of New York! This wonderful organization does so much for the poetry community, from their infamous and not to mention international monthly Poetry Brothels events to their annual New York Poetry Festival on Governor’s Island. Their focus—to push interest in the literary community closer toward the seams of other walks of life and to do so with a signature sexy blooming empowerment—feels right on with our mission to shake the contents of the lit box and see what else we can discover and find. As their literary and education arm, we will be extra vigilant about the types of literature we are publishing, maintaining a necessary accountability and eye for elsewhere. We are extremely excited about this partnership, and you will begin to the see the fruits of our combined labors very soon, we promise. Become a member today!

Still Looking For...

July 6, 2015

Events Coordinator
We are seeking a big personality and total ham to be our new Events Coordinator! The Events Coordinator would organize and host our monthly reading series, the Atlas Reading Series, a text-art collaboration that takes place at 61 Local in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. They would also organize and host upcoming launches, special events and festivals, and whatever else might come our way! Big ups if you have attended our events. Maybe you heard about the Solaris marathon we co-organized with Marina Abramovic Institute two summers ago? Yeah, that was a lot of work! But we did it as a team. So you would also be someone open to collaboration who doesn’t hold their cards too close to their chest! You are also someone who is pleased as plums to uphold our reader rules: No event can be majority men; no event can be all white. 
As with every position on staff, this is a volunteer position, but you would be part of a great group of thinkers, plus free pizza/fun at our meetings! Send a brief intro about yourself our way that demonstrates your past as an events coordinator and your ideas about how you envision reading spaces. Tell us about some literary events you’ve recently attended and some of your recent book lists. Send this and your contact info to theatlasreview [at] gmail [dot] com.
