  • "The Corresponding Society is a radical body concentrated on the expansion of alphabetic engagements. The creators of the group are young writers dwelling in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, a borough of New York City. Subsequent to its localized formation, geographically diverse affiliates were established. The strategy is to build a network of corresponding subjects to encourage creative instigation and support the distribution of printed material. The society irritates mundanity by opposing ideological concord and promoting new writing. In 2008 CE the society commenced printing a biannual record titled Correspondence, a compendium of perfervid language, a healthy variorum of contrastive pursuits. Thereafter the society developed an obscure Internet presence purposed to serve the cause by disseminating pertinent information, providing a directory of its membership, and possibly a discursive platform via the official web log."
