(bits) by bill keaggy

Every week I used to find a cool weblog (sometimes a local St. Louis blog) or some useful, interesting web site from here or there and write up a brief on it for the Sunday Everyday section Tuesday Here and Now section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (I used to work there as Features Photo Editor). That's about it. Not much action here anymore. More of my stuff can be seen here: keaggy.com.

The Cringe Book

Are you a horrible writer with dreams of being published in a great book? The Cringe Book may be your only chance. Sarah Brown of Brooklyn, New York is looking for brave souls willing to share old diaries entries, journals, letters, notes, songs or poems. Basically, anything written during the your supposedly miserable adolescence has a chance. According to Brown, the more "dramatic, embarrassing or excruciating the writing, the better." The project started as a monthly reading series and the book will be published by The Crown Publishing Group in spring 2008. Let it all hang out at www.cringebook.com.
