In 2012 the Literary Hang emphasizes publishing. Self publishers, small presses and larger companies are invited to participate. This format allows all areas of publishing to display and promote their writers and their works.
It also allows aspiring writers to explore any publishing options present on that day. This event is proposed as one that promotes the creativity of Guyanese expression, in particular, and the Caribbean Diaspora, at large.
As part of the activities for the day publishers, accepted for The Literary Hang, may present their contracted writers during the day at their individual spaces. In addition, there will be a public reading by invited writers during the day.
Part of that program will be an interview with the actors from the hugely successful 2011 adaptation of C. L. R. James' Minty Alley. All publishers will be responsible for the delivery, set up, sales and removal of all their own goods. GCA will not store any material or be responsible for any sales.
All genres of the published word, except pornography, will be considered for inclusion in the general activities of the day. Magazines, graphic readers, e-books, children's literature, cookbooks, poetry, plays, videos and CD's of performances, novels, short stories and other prose are expected to form part of the offerings on display and for sale. This event is open to all ages and children are especially welcome.
There will be refreshments for sale.
The date of the Literary Hang is Saturday, June 9, 2012, at the Flatbush Reformed Church at the corner of Flatbush and Church Aves. It will begin at 1 and end at 7 pm.
