Adam and I co-hosted a Brooklyn to Baltimore holiday Skype party last night.
The party last night was really great and lovely and we somehow pulled it off better than I expected, but the part that really killed me was talking to all of my old roommates and all of my close friends via skype all night during our concurrent parties.
Getting texts to “let me in” alongside texts like “hey come back to the computer because ______ just showed up!” was so perfect. If the world had ended, that would have been how I wanted to go.
Megs Senk is a really good person who I met when we both made it to the final application round of the WK12 program last September. Like many of the best people in my life, I did not particularly like her at first. But, we bonded by the end of it all and have been friends since.
Today, after a year in the 12 program, she’s a new hire at W+K (congratulations some more!!!!!), her Emergency Compliment project has blown up (good thing I got her into my planner before NPR got to her), and I even recently lent her my handwriting for her Dry Socks vending machines.
Anyway I am friend-bragging right now because she is a really good person who actually inspired me greatly when we first met, and I am very proud of her and look forward to hanging out and complaining about stuff.
Follow her tumblr! Read her interview! OK!

Parlor Issue 1 is an online collection of 4 poems by 8 writers. Writers were paired up and asked to write a poem based off of a title prompt without knowing who their partner was.
Exquisite corpse art was invented in the 1920s by the Surrealists as a parlor game. The first player would write on a sheet of paper, fold it over to conceal part of their piece, and hand the paper to the next player. The players would only find out what the other players wrote when the poem was finished.
After a bit of thorough Gmail correspondence with myself being the middlewoman between partners as they wrote their parts, the poems are now finished and published. I hope you enjoy Issue 1.
