Gothic Funk Press and Buckham Gallery: FLOOD 2024 Anthology Release
Gothic Funk Press will publish FLOOD 2024, a print anthology, on April 20, 2024. Writers featured in FLOOD 2024 include Nadia Alamah, Nic Custer, Roy Richard, and Jan Worth.
A launch party will accompany the publication, hosted by Gothic Funk Press in partnership with Flint’s dynamic Buckham Gallery and the Pierce Park Nature Preserve at 1 pm, April 20, 2302 Brookside Dr., Flint, MI 48503. PLEASE NOTE that restroom facilities are NOT available at the Nature Preserve this month.
The event will include readings by contributing writers, a presentation on the restoration work at the nature preserve, live music, and light refreshments. A limited number of copies of FLOOD 2024 will be available for guests.
Both the anthology and the launch party are free. A recommended donation of $10 per copy or guest will help support Gothic Funk Press provide literary activities and community engagement in Flint.
FLOOD 2024 offers an adventure in imaginative storytelling. Participating writers responded to a common set of writing constraints: every piece of writing shares several features including an emphasis upon water, a withholding of names, and an allusion to the Djuna Barnes poem “This Much and More.”
The Gothic Funk Press is a Flint, Michigan-based independent publisher based with a emphasis upon “gothic funk” art: experimental work featuring degrees of romanticism, darkness, depth, and swagger. The Press has published works of Gothic Funk fiction and poetry and anthologies in support of Flint and Genesee County writers. The Press hosts a popular online salon series that brings writers from around the world together, and has also coordinated community engagement events such as the Flint Order of Orpheus and the Flint Area Scavenger Hunt.
Buckham Gallery is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in downtown Flint, Michigan. The gallery has been an anchor of the Flint art community since its inception in 1984. Founded by a collective of area artists, arts professors, and arts professionals, gallery operations, exhibitions, and programming continue to be led by artists and arts professionals.
Pierce Park Nature Preserve is a new non-profit organization under taking the restoration of the former golf course into a natural habitat. We will use this group to announce events, ideas for development and opportunities for volunteering. Membership is open to all.
