Last Thursday, November 29th, writers, readers, and a few Lit Cleveland members gathered at The Happy Dog to celebrate the launch of Gordon Square Review's third issue, which went live earlier in the week.
The night kicked off with a reading from some of Issue 3's talented contributors: prose contest winner Ariel Lewis, Jason Harris, Charlie Malone, Anne Cudnik, and prose contest finalists Jackie Feldman and Courtney Ebert.
Those in attendance also had the chance to participate in a raffle to win prizes from In the 216, Artful Living, Sweet Moses, Cleveland Cinemas, Belt Publishing & Belt Magazine, and even some Lit Cleveland swag.
We were thrilled to have a full house on such a chilly Thursday night, and this was the most successful Gordon Square Review event to date! Special thanks to our contributors, prose contest judge Lucy Biederman, GSR editors Laura, Matt, and Ali, our generous raffle donors, and The Happy Dog.
Pushcart Prize nominations were announced at the end of last week, and there are a few past and present Gordon Square Review writers in the running this year! Congratulations to Elizabeth Wing, Idza Luhumyo, Ariel Lewis, Jason Harris, Cat Dixon, and Amanda Stovicek.
Check out some photos from the launch party below, and be sure to read Issue 3!
