The busy bees over at the University of Wynwood have been working nonstop to brighten this neon town with poetic radiance. Lately, they've brought the word to the streets, from the Miami Art Museum to Sweat Records. These pseudo-collegiate bastards are fully committed to making our lives less boring and our brains less stupid.
To further foster a thinking, writing, and poetry-reading community in sunny SoFla, UW has started their very own zine. Hitting the streets sometime around the clusterfuck called Art Basel, the inaugural issue of Jai-Alai Magazine will include poetry, short fiction, black and white drawings, and short essays. The plan is for the zine to be a bit fancier than your average stapled-together packet of feminist drivel.
Cunningham also thinks the "archive allows us to tell more than one story to future generations of Miamians." So do it. Jump at the chance to be part of Miami's literary memory -- limited as it may still be. With University of Wynwood around, the probability of expansion looks pretty good.
