Black Clock #2

PEN logoI can't swear that PEN Center USA's website is new, but I just came across it for the first time. Bookmark it as another good place to find about literary happenings in Los Angeles. Speaking of, the second issue of Black Clock—the literary magazine published at CalArts out in Valencia and edited by Steve Erickson—will make its debut next Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Dutton's in Beverly Hills. Contributors Miranda July, Rachel Resnick and David L. Ulin will read and sign copies of the magazine.

PEN has also extended the deadline for writers to submit their work for this year's Literary Awards. The extension applies to entires in feature journalism, drama, teleplay and screenplay but not books. The deadline is now February 25.
