Gabe Barber, the hard-working guy behind Reading Local Portland, recently solicited stories on the theme “Launch,” in honor of the launch of his newly-designed website.
He’s started posting the stories on the RLP site, and once they’re all up he’ll be working with Publication Studio (helmed by the delightful and talented Matthew Stadler and Patricia No) to print a chapbook collection. Publication Studio is an on-demand printer and binder of books, an e-book publisher, and a lot of other things all wrapped into one sleek, stylish Portland package. One face of the future of publishing, that is to say.
Gigi Little’s story “Window Seat” just went up on the RLP site. It’s a delightful moment of suspension in a woman’s life, between flying and falling. I recommend.
