You all know the types. The writers of Bushwick who cling to one another in order to delude themselves into some sort of relevancy. It’s like they want so desperately to re-create the era of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Dos Passos, et. al. living in Paris during the 1920s. But alas, it is not a Lost Generation we are dealing with, merely a blank one. Even so, the ego of the Bushwick literati is too great to quell, hence the collective known as The Right to Write, comprised of John Bookworm, Honora Pretense, Esoteria Essex, Plath Sexton and Roland Cliterature, releasing a new short story collection entitled Bored in Bushwick.

The Bushwick writers collective, The Right to Write, will release their shorty story collection, Bored in Bushwick, in a handsome leather-bound edition, as well as traditional paperback.

Although there is no cohesive theme to the collection, except general occurrences happening in Bushwick, Plath Sexton stated, “I think our prose is going to take not only Bushwick, but all of New York City by storm. I truly feel that what we’re saying is so important.” Sexton went on to say that her story was about being raped in an alley near White Street before Vice Versa was there. Others in the collective showed a greater sense of shame about their self-admiration, like Cliterature, who noted, “My story is too experimental to describe.”

The Right to Write will hold a release party for the event on June 7th at Mellow Pages. Esoteria Essex cautioned The Burning Bush not to expect any cover art and also mentioned that her entire section would be left blank as some sort of statement on living in modern culture. The collective plans to charge $100 per copy, and supplies are limited.
