Avery Shorts Live ••• Friday, April 17, 2020 ••• Memo! ••• Avery Shorts Editors

Dear readers, 

    We hope you are somewhere safe, managing some kind of sanity, taking care, and finding whatever comfort can be had under the current circumstances.
    We write with the full awareness that your inbox is probably overflowing with emails from your favorite journals, publications, bookstores, newsletters, and so on – offering sentiments of mutual distress, inviting you to participate, calling on you for your ideas. This both is and is not one of those emails. 
    We are writing to let you know that we are launching Avery Shorts Live to continue sharing timely, bite-sized reflections between our usual publication rhythms, partly because of the uncertainty posed by COVID-19 but mostly because of the short writings, musings, and observations we already get sent by all of you off-season. Avery Shorts Live remains the same platform — a space for sharing half-baked ideas, for staring-into-the-void thoughts, for sleepless tangents, excerpts, images, questions, and projects you can’t get out of your head — just more freewheeling, more urgent, and more immediate.
    We recognize all the ways we are able and unable, productive and unproductive, working and not working, alone and together, essential and non-essential – all the ways this crisis is new/different and old/similar to other crises, both normal/abnormal to conditions of daily life – so we share Avery Shorts Live with you now only really to say that it’s here, and that the same rules apply (500 words or less, or for 500-words-or-less worth of images, or whatever you want it to be, $100 for published submissions). Like that sporadic and messy b-side to a regular Avery Shorts season, Avery Shorts Live is the place to record and improvise all your impressions as they arise. 

In short, sending love and solidarity,
<3 Avery Shorts Editors
