HI LIT FOLK!
this week we’re introducing a new feature: friday links. each friday the lit staff will share w/ u what they’ve been reading/watching/consuming on the internet that week.
this week, we’ve got a lot of great stuff. from 18th c. poems about cats to futuristic hot-pink synth pop, the lit board brings you a week’s worth of reading and entertainment.
