In observation of our impending second anniversary, we’ve decided to add a splash of color to this April’s promotional images.

To that end, stop by Middlesex Lounge on April 16 to help us celebrate! On Monday, April 16 at 7pm, Kimberly Duncan-Mooney, Timothy Patrick McCarthy, Randolph Pfaff, and Kate Sloan will share their words and work and you’ll love every minute!

So be sure to be there and help us kick off our third year right!

(Also, last year, there were cookies–perhaps balloons this year?)

Randolph is a literary aristocracy of one.

Randolph Pfaff is a writer, editor, and visual artist. He lives in Boston where he edits for a magazine called apt and a small press called Aforementioned. He also writes and edits professionally for a small liberal arts college he has tricked into paying him in exchange for words. Please don’t blow his cover. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in The Destroyer, Rufous City Review, Metazen, Thunderclap!, and Open Letters Monthly, among others.

Randolph is the poet for the April 16 reading.

We’re hopping over at AP–the second print issue of apt just came out and we’re running a contest to celebrate–but I wanted to make sure that you mark your dance cards for the next Literary Firsts reading.

So, dust off your fanciest shoes and join us at 7pm on Monday, April 16 at the Middlesex Lounge when Kimberly Duncan-Mooney will be our fiction writer, Kate Sloan will be our essayist, Randolph Pfaff will be our poet, and Tim McCarthy will be our confessional reader.

On a personal note, that will mark the start of our third year, so we’re all going to have to sing happy birthday to LF. I promise not to cry.

Randolph Pfaff is concavity caught in the rim of your glass.

Randolph Pfaff is a visual artist, designer, and editor. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree in library and information science from Simmons College, making him a future Master of Information.

Randolph is part of the historical reenactment of the History of the Necktie for the October 17 reading. It’s historical.
