I have been slowly getting out the news that Shape of a Box will be issuing 9 more videos before it closes in October.
9 more videos means that I managed to (with some help from some other videographers!) produce 52 weekly issues of a YouTube’s first (and maybe still only) literary magazine.
It has been such a pleasure to work with such wonderful writers. I love being an editor but I realized about half way through this last year that I would not be able to keep up the pace.
Earlier this year J.S. Graustein joined our “staff” (can you be staff if you are not paid?) and when I decided to move away from Folded Word Press projects she took over and expanded Folded Word to include a dedicated website, Twitter zines, the broadside Heron, and she has ideas for a lot of other great material for 2010.
Shape of a Box will be on YouTube indefinitely. Folded Word Press’ main website will also archive the links to the contributor bios and playlists so people have another way of finding the material.
I am so happy that Folded Word Press will continue to live on under such great management and I look forward to being a consumer of its products.
Thank you so much to everyone who has made Shape of a Box a success. I have loved working with you guys. Stay tuned for the last 9 issues as we still have great work to come!
-Editor, Shape of a Box
