Periodically Speaking: Speaking on Seeing -
at The New York Public Library

The Council for Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) and The New York Public Library are currently running Periodically Speaking, a free reading series providing a major new venue for emerging writers to present their work while highlighting the riches of literary magazines in New York City and the magazine collections of The New York Public Library. Each event presents writers from three influential literary magazines, introduced by their publisher/editors. The themes for the fall series of readings focus on the senses, starting off with poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction that address 'seeing' in different and innovative ways.

The Summerset Review was proud to be the literary magazine selected to present the fiction in the first event of this series at The Library on October 11th, 2005, in the historic DeWitt Wallace Periodical Room. Michael F. Smith read his story, "Anywhere," which appeared in the Summer 2004 issue.

This series was made possible in part by support from The New York Community Trust, The Greenwall Foundation; the New York State Council for the Arts, a state agency; and Friends of CLMP, a diverse group of individuals committed to supporting independent literary publishing.

The Summerset Review wishes to thank all of these organizations, the CLMP, and The New York Public Library for this opportunity, as well as all those who attended the event.
