Ida Jane Griesemer is a young writer, curator, photographer and Brooklyn resident who runs submissions-centric literary/art website Low Log with her good friend and roommate Michael Pollock. The communal aspect is what attracted me to the site in the first place. All LowLog asks is for "greatness," which you indeed possess since you read these fine pages so why not submit a work?
"Our content is not limited to any genre, medium, topic, or style," reads their 'About' section. This sentiment rings true throughout - a cursory glance reveals a two-part short story called "Boris Diaw and the Infinite Sadness" (that's right, the French NBA player and a Smashing Pumpkins reference), paintings, poetry, collages, interviews and music. Oh, and they also threw a rad show/party at their apartment, dubbed The Low Loft.
Low Log has slowed a bit as of late, but is working to amend that. The two are organizing another event, this time composed of readings and a visual art showing instead of bands and "comedy."
