Issue III

Hello supporters of The Logan Square Literary Review! Issue III is here and ready for YOU! Thanks again to those who submitted work, and those who loaned their support and effort to bring this issue together.

I have set the submission deadline for Issue IV at June 21. So get those summer submissions in!

Issue III is available by mail order on the right side of your screen, and look for Issue III on the shelves at our four vendors. I hope to have the LSLR available at more shops soon, but as it stands, our four vendors are:

Wolfbait & B-Girls Boutique
G-Mart Comics
Quimby's Books
Myopic Bookstore

The LSLR has now started a Tumblr site, to feature submitted works in audio, film, photo, or really anything else you could publish to a tumblr site. Please submit your work to with the subject "tumbler submission" as the subject line.

Cruise over to to see the digital doppelganger of the LSLR.

In other news, there have been mentions of a festival involving the LSLR in blog posts and other places, and I do want to confirm that the LSLR is partnering with numerous other organizers and groups to put on the TIM TAM SLAM, this September. It will be a free, outdoor, spoken-word and performance festival at the Logan Square Blue Line CTA stop. That's about all the concreted details we have so far, but permissions have been granted by the necessary authorities, and we are ready to start fielding proposals for performers.

We are maintaining a semi-strict line on the types of performers we're going to feature, and they should be spoken-word/live reading-oriented, or rhythmic-dance and drumming-oriented performances. At this point we are not looking for music acts that involve anything more than a drum (or many). Drum circles, step-dance troops, etc. please apply. We will gladly review any application concerning a performance in any medium, but please note that musicians will most likely be turned down. Sorry!

To apply as a performer, please send the following information to

- size and type of performing group
- needs for microphones and other equipment
- any examples that would exemplify your performance
reading examples
youtube videos
social networking pages

Thank you and enjoy Issue III!
