MFA students Giuseppe Infante, Gulay Isik, Kyle De Ocera, and Micah Sivaglio have teamed up to establish Overpass Books, a small press that publishes a quarterly journal of art and literature, By The Overpass. Their first issue just came out. Check out their web page here: http://overpassbooks.com/
Another publishing venture that has come out of Long Island University's MFA program is a hand-made poetry journal called Sun's Skeleton. Issue two just came out and is available via their website. MFA student Tony Iantosca started this one with friends from Vermont and New York.
Sun's Skeleton will also host a release party on March 26th at Unnameable Books. Here's a blurb from their facebook event page:
And finally, the MFA program has just finished assembling its new journal, Brooklyn Paramount. This journal does not have a website just yet, but it sure is beautiful. Like Sun's Skeleton, it was hand-bound and assembled. Copies are available at various MFA events, and by contacting program director Lewis Warsh. Brooklyn Paramount exclusively features work by students, faculty, and alumni from the MFA program.
