…what fallow vines bear fruit for me?
Haight Ashbury Literary Journal
Vol. 35 No. 1
A celebration and reading: Haight Ashbury Literary Journal Vol. 35, Number 1.
The Haight Ashbury Literary Journal started in 1979. The founders’ idea was that there were talented writers in the Haight, which was starting to revive after the mid-seventies downturn. The editors put ads in literary directories, and started to get submissions from the rest of the city, other states, and even countries. 40 years later, another issue hits the streets!
Readers will include Kim Shuck, K.R. Morrison, Melen Lunn, William Taylor Jr., Will Walker, Karen Melander-Magoon
Donations to the HALJ appreciated.

It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
