Drink Your Serial – Photo Recap

On Saturday August 14th, we held our first public event – Drink Your Serial – at Paladar on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.   We had 60+ people show up, we raffled off 4 amazing prizes throughout the night, and killed two kegs worth of Brooklyn Lager until nearly 3am – we are calling that a wild success and really do thank everyone for showing their support!   If you missed it, don’t worry – we’re already hard at work planning another party – and lets just say, this one will be nothing less than a bash.

Check out these pictures from the fantastic photographer, Corey Torpie, and if you want to see more check out our Facebook Page!

Signs like this are how you know it’s going down.

Senior Editors reduced to shameless promotion…

Plaid. The literary world’s best friend and worst enemy.

If our photographer is organizing a game of flip cup… who’s taking the pictures?

Thanks again to everyone who came out! You made the event a bigger success then we ever could have imagined!


Thank You for Your Support This Weekend!

I just wanted to take some time and thank everyone who made it out to “Drink Your Serial” this past Saturday night. The turnout was tremendous, and it was great to get a chance to meet some of you.

For those of you who weren’t able to make it, we’ll have pictures up in the next day or so.  And we’ll be planning another event for the near future.  And let me tell you, some of the ideas being thrown out for our second get together have been… scary awesome.

If you want to help support Eat Your Serial but were unable to meet up with us in New York this weekend, you can check out our Kickstarter page.  Every little bit helps tremendously.

Again, thank you all so very much.  And stay tuned, because there’s a lot more to come!

We are Live on Kickstarter!

Hey Everyone,

As you may or may not know, Eat Your Serial is a web start-up company that will be featuring the talents of up and coming writers.  The site will fully launch in the fall with daily content to be serialized each and every week.  It’s quite the project and we here are extremely excited to showcase some incredible talent.  However, we need some help.

And now, Eat Your Serial is on Kickstarter, a social site that allows people to “fund and follow creativity”. You can check out our page here, but please keep reading for more information.

Before we get to the awkward begging, I wanted to straight up thank all of you for your support in the infancy of Eat Your Serial.  This is a project that has taken on a life of its own and grown exponentially – and a lot of that is due to the excitement of everyone involved.

But with growth comes added costs. So here I am, coming to you hat in hand asking for a different kind of support.  Along with our upcoming Happy Hour event, as I said in the introduction, we have just launched a fundraising initiative through Kickstarter.  If you’re not familiar with this great site, I would suggest checking out the link.

In a nutshell, it is a site that provides a platform for creative ventures to seek funding from the public.  But we’re not just asking for money here.  The fun part of working with Kickstarter, is that we’re offering up some very cool rewards to match people’s donations.

The more you can contribute, the wilder the reward. And the faster we will be able to bring the full potential of Eat Your Serial to readers and writers everywhere.

Also, for now, the kickstarter.com website is the only place you can see our delightfully ridiculous first ever Eat Your Serial Commercial.  So that alone is worth checking out, even if you can’t donate.

But if you can, please contribute. And if you are so inclined, please forward this on to anyone else you can think of that would find this to be a worthwhile project to donate to.  Our whole goal is to promote up and coming talented authors.  We’re attempting to give a voice to those who might not have a voice otherwise, and maybe even make some dreams come true by becoming publish authors.  That’s worth $10 right?   We think so.

Here’s the link again. We can’t do this without you.

Thank you,

– Shawn, The Chief

Who Do You Write Like?

Have you ever wondered what your writing style is like?   My favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut, and I know I’ve made many an attempt to write like him.  I’ve even gone so far as to go out and write random thoughts down on cocktail napkins like he did while he wrote “Cat’s Cradle,” (that’s why the chapters are so short).

Well, now you can take portions of things you’ve written and slap it into this very interesting website and it will analyze what you wrote fairly quickly.   It doesn’t change too much either, at least for me.  It might if you really vary your writing style.

Give it a shot.  Throw in fiction stories, blog posts, news articles and see what it says.  If you’ve got a style like a Stephen King or an Edgar Allan Poe – we want you for Eat Your Serial – that’s for sure!
