Farewell, from Vouched Indy

First Vouched Books table outside Big Car Gallery, October 10, 2010


I’ve been wrestling with this for months, and especially in the last several weeks. Even still, I feel a race and a crush in my chest as I type this: June 7th will be the last Vouched Indy table. I’ve decided to close up shop here and transfer the flag to Vouched Atlanta, where Laura has been doing absolutely incredible things to build and promote the small press and literary culture.

I want to say thank you to all the readers, writers, and publishers who have supported Vouched from the very beginning, some now defunct: PANK, Annalemma, Mud Luscious, Publishing Genius, Hobart, Artifice, Rose Metal, DZANC, Magic Helicopter. The list goes on and on. And those are just the publishers–that’s not to mention the hundreds of incredible people I’ve met in the past three years: Roxane Gay, Matt Bell, Molly Gaudry, JA Tyler, Adam Robinson, Justin Sirois, Matt Seigel, Aaron Burch, Casey Hannan, Tim Jones-Yelvington, Tadd Adcox, xTx, Devan Goldstein, Aubrey Hirsch, on and on and on.

Lastly, I want to thank my wonderful contributors, past and present and future. I wouldn’t have lasted this long without all of you–especially without Tyler Gobble and his boundless energy, Laura and her gumption. I can’t wait to see what Laura builds as admiral of the Vouched fleet.

The small press community has shaped and changed my life in ways I can’t even express, and I will remain grateful to the eventual grave. I intend to remain a part of it in some way, will probably hang around and post a review here or there, and look forward to seeing everyone at future AWPs and readings. Here’s to Vouched. Here’s to you all. Here’s to everyone who has ever understood what it means to be small.

    Sad to see Vouched Indy go, it was my first introduction to a literary culture outside of my university. Many wishes of good luck to Vouched Atlanta, the city doesn’t know how lucky they are.

    There are some normal mixtures like hamburger with sauce, horseradish sauce and mustard, presented with Yorkshire pudding – a dish produced out of prepared batter, broil – pork with “crackling” (fresh cooked pork skin).
    Products are available on line, and at their retail location in Chester County,
    Pennsylvania. Greg Leverich talks about Restaurants in Lancashire.

    Unquestionably believe that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the internet the easiest factor to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as people consider issues that
    they plainly do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the entire
    thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
