Three literaries band together to create a seasonal pop-up shop

Three literary  magazines in Toronto -- The Feathertale Review, CAROUSEL and Poetry is
Dead -- will be opening a pop-up shop and arts festival called LIT BANG! starting November 26. It will be in the Milk Glass Gallery 1247 Dundas St in Toronto (Ossington/Dundas). The three titles have banded together as Print: Art/Lit Publishers United.

The shop opens November 26 with the launch party for issue 16 of The Feathertale Review and stays in place until December 20. Shop hours are 1-7 pm week days and 11 am - 5 pm weekends. 
"It was made possible by the Canada Council for the Arts, which gave Feathertale a grant to create a dedicated store front to try to promote and sell a group of small magazines," said Feathertale editor Brett Popplewell. "To some extent it's an attempt to create a very targeted and interactive newsstand for our titles on a busy Toronto street." 
Among the highlights (of the more than a dozen events throughout the month) are an opening reception Dec 3 with an art show featuring original work and prints and an ‘All The Words’ Festival Dec 12/13 where on the Saturday, a range of fellow small presses (like Little Brother and Taddle Creek) are invited to showcase their publications; and on Sunday, enthusiasts of the genre can take part in our Chapbook Exchange. Plus artwork, readings, talks and performances by (among others) Margaret Christakos, Mark Connery, Jim Johnstone, Dakota McFadzean, Gustave Morin, Sachiko Murakami, Sarah Pinder, Michael Toke, Fiona Smyth and Jacqueline Valencia.
