Toad Suck Review, the new incarnation of the UCA Department of Writing-based Exquisite Corpse Annual, will celebrate its release on Friday, March 4, with the Toad Suck Review Launchapalooza on the rooftop of Michelangelo’s, 1117 W. Oak St., Conway.
The inaugural edition of the review — described by editor Mark Spitzer in an introduction as “an incandescent stew of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, translations and review; a place-based, pomo-inspired, international literary journal” — includes contributions by Kevin Brockmeier, C.D. Wright and Times contributor Bernard Reed, who expands the review of C.D. Wright’s “One with Others” that he did for us.
Brockmeier, Reed and more contributors will launch the Launchapalooza with readings beginning at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Full details on the event on the jump.
