Poetry. Fiction. The Encyclopedia Project is a groundbreaking literary and visual experience in five volumes. Like the traditional encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia Project spans A-Z, but the contents combine the creative possibilities of a literary journal with the stunning four-color imagery of an artist's portfolio. The Encyclopedists' editorial process does not determine future content in advance, but is instead a chance operation between editors and contributors. However, they will ensure that 50% of each volume's contributors are people of color, representative of a full spectrum of creative work, regardless of age, scene, geographic location, level of education, or number of tattoos. This volume features over 150 entries by 114 talented folk, including a rebus on Kathy Acker by Anna Joy Springer, Aspects of the Novel by Rebecca Brown, Babble by Robert Gluck, Eileen Myles' Butch, Epic by Samuel R. Delany, Diary by The Quails' Julianna Bright, K'vetsch founder Sara Seinberg's Ephemera, Essentialism by kari edwards, and much more! Other contributors to Volume I include Brian Evenson, Thalia Field, Susan Bernstein, Joanna Howard and Michael Gizzi.
