Hysterical Issue 1 Launch Party!


Celebrate the launch of Hysterical’s premiere issue on All Hallow’s Eve Eve like the digital goth that you are.

We will revive the great spirits of the literary canon by asking a computer to recreate a short work in their writing style, only to be pitted against one another to see who reigns supreme. Will the moody digital ghost of Emily Dickinson crush the algorithmic zombie corpse of Saul Bellow?

Audience votes determine the canon winners who will then battle contributor work in our first issue. Get a beer, vote, laugh, and help us launch our first issue into the world in the spookiest, yet nerdiest way imaginable.

When: Tuesday, October 30th, 9-11pm
Where: Footlight Bar, 465 Seneca Ave, Ridgewood
Who: 21+ years old human persons
Cost: Free! But be prepared to buy beer and Hysterical swag

Flyer by the inimitable Francesca Caruso. Find her on IG @yankeehandle
