Everyday Genius has been a blast this month, with full weeks contributed by Christopher Newgent, Amelia Gray and Matt Bell, all figuring out ways to present lit on the net in a way that is more than words on a webpage.
This week, Rozalia Jovanovic curated a postcard series with 24 artists and writers, including htmlgiant faves like Deb Olin Unferth, Tao Lin, Justin Taylor, Leni Zumas, all based on five different assignments. Today’s instructions were to “Explain how to do something in 5-7 steps.” One contributor’s response is above, and all the contributors will be matched to their cards when the series is complete. Collect ’em all!

Thanks, Ken, for posting about Matt Bell’s live writing sessions. The first paragraph of his story, one that never made it off the ground, has been posted at Everyday Genius, where there is also a schedule and a link to the MeetingWords site where it’s all going to happen. Tune in today at noon and again at five to see how Matt Bell writes a story, letter by letter.
Matt Bell is going to write a story live. We can watch him write. Then, later this week, we can rewrite the story. Then Michael Kimball & Lily Hoang will rewrite the rewritten story, and we can watch. And then we can watch Matt rewrite the revised rewritten story. Good luck to us all.
I’ve been guest editing Adam’s Everyday Genius this month. Today is Sean Kilpatrick’s poem ‘fistfucking rules’ which again reiterates why he is one of the realest mothers in this. Also this month new work from Laura Carter, Mark Leidner, Rav Grewal-Kök, Kimberly King Parsons, Robert Kloss, Donora Hillard, Travis Nichols, Kevin O’Cuinn, Cameron Pierce, Kate Zambreno, and Amy McDaniel, and the month is only halfsies. Hit it, please!
