ERIN MATSON ART CATALOG & ARCHIVE
Erin Matson (née Black) was a Beat artist based in the Catskills, New York. In June 2018, I was asked to come up to the Catskills to catalog Erin's entire lifetime of artwork, spanning over fifty years. Unfortunately, Erin passed away in July 2018. Before her passing, I ran her website, Facebook page, and Instagram showcasing her incredible artwork in addition to the cataloging project.
CROOKED TEETH LITERARY MAGAZINE
Founded in April 2017, Crooked Teeth Literary Magazine set out to connect isolated literary communities and give artists a safe platform for self-expression during increasingly tumultuous socio-political times. Within months, the magazine rose to prominence in the up-and-coming literary publication world, getting submissions from around the world, from the Bay Area to New York, from London to Hong Kong. Crooked Teeth put out two incredible issues, Summer in the City and Winter in the City, before going on an (impolitely) unannounced hiatus in February 2018. The magazine continues to be on hold. (Print is expensive).
San Francisco State University's undergraduate literary magazine, Transfer Magazine, is the longest running student-run publication in the country. I had the pleasure and honor of working on the magazine for three consecutive semesters, working on the fiction staff, then as a fiction editor, then as the managing editor.
NOT FOR NOTHING BY CORI HARTWIG
Featuring ten original songs written when I was sixteen years old, I released Not For Nothing on April 29, 2016–three years after I finished writing the songs. With mellow melodies and vulnerable lyricism, Not For Nothing follows the ups and downs of a relationship and all of the emotions that come along with it.
