- It’s going to be sad when I have to go six whole months without posting this thing.
So, tonight, at Williamsburg’s Spike Hill, at 7pm, you’ll of course be joining us for the fiercely contested grand blow-out finale of Literary Upstart, featuring all your favorite Literary Upstart semifinalists from this year (assuming you’re not the friend of any of the semifinalists who did not win), along with trivia! spectacular giveaways! many drunken tears and declarations of affection! a giant novelty check! and so on. Oh, and here’s a thing: we’ve made arrangements with Old Forester bourbon to have whiskey drinks on hand for a dollar a piece. Classy! Until, quite abruptly, it becomes not classy at all.
