The first task of any upstart literary outfit is to survive. We’ve accomplished this for another year– but we want more. In 2017 we plan to give you more. A lot more.

In the meantime, read our year-end  review News Report of our 2016 activities at our News blog.

Also be sure to read our final Fun Pop Poem of 2016, “Exploitation of Subtlety” by multi-talented artist/writer Dan Nielsen.

Thanks to one and all!

 

Prattlegate

Pop Lit Fiction

The power of media is something we witness every day. We’re bombarded by it, from television screens to Yahoo news feeds and supermarket tabloids. all of them screaming insane headlines on all sides. Fear! Scandal! Hysteria!

It becomes more and more impossible to know truth from imagination from PR.

This is the premise of “Prattlegate,” a great new story by Ken O’Steen. It may give you a moment of perspective on what you’re daily experiencing.

Richard made the final click, and the story was disseminated.

“Thirty seconds already?” Raymond asked.

“About.”

“Shit. We’re already past a minute. You’ve got to take it down. Yikes,” Raymond said, clutching at his hair with both of his hands.
