LIVE ON CROWDCAST: ZYZZYVA: The Technology Issue Launch!

*Please note: This event will take place live on Crowdcast. RSVP here to join the livestream or watch the replay.

The newest installment of ZYZZYVA—The Technology Issue: Stories, Dreams, & Nightmares—reminds us of the essential synergy between art and science—how important literature is, as a critical challenge to technology’s momentum, as a creative force driving innovation, and, sometimes, as a conscience. Join us for an evening featuring contributors Kate Reed Petty, Héctor Tobar, Sheryl Luna, and Dave McClinton.

Sheryl Luna is the author of the poetry collections Pity the Drowned Horses (University of Notre Dame Press), winner of the Andres Montoya Poetry Prize, Seven (3: A Taos Press), and the forthcoming Magnificent Hours, winner of the 2020 Ernest Sandeen Poetry Prize. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere.

Dave McClinton is a visual artist living and working in Austin, Texas. His artwork, which seeks “to illustrate the journey of a Black person’s inner life,” is featured in The Technology Issue.

Kate Reed Petty is the author of the novel True Story (Viking). Her fiction and essays have been published in Electric Literature, American Short Fiction, and elsewhere.

Héctor Tobar is the award-winning author of the novels The Tattooed Soldier, The Barbarian Nurseries, and most recently, The Last Great Road Bum (MCD/Farrar, Straus & Giroux). He is also the author of the best-selling book Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine and the Miracle That Set Them Free (Picador).
