The Corresponding Society, headquartered in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, is a small press that publishes the biannual literary journal Correspondence. The journal, which is purposed to represent new and unfamiliar writing, is full of poetry but also pays atypical attention to essays, translations, and hybrid work. The Corresponding Society is pleased to return to the KGB Bar for a reading celebrating the release of the second issue of Correspondence.
