Handsy HANDSY is a digital literary journal dedicated to building a community of writers.

HANDSY is a digital literary journal dedicated to building a community of writers. Written by the editors, edited by the writers, this is a space for those who feel isolated in the vacuum of their own creative mind and desire a community in which they can feel validated, challenged, and inspired.

Mission: Handsy is an experiment in fearlessness. So much of our lives are lived in fear. We fear failure, we fear exposure, we fear our own stupidity, and we especially fear being compared to Lena Dunham. For those who wish to take part in Handsy, please send all submissions to [email protected]. We accept writing submissions and design submissions including photography, illustration, and graphic designs. Please indicate in your submission whether or not you would like to take part in the editorial meetings that take place each week in Brooklyn.

The Schmooze

To the Handsy family that once was: I'm writing to let you know that your Handsy governors are good and well. Sam is the best employee in her D.C. office for the environmental film festival. Max is putting the finishing touches on his novel and, in the meantime, writing and publishing kick ass short stories. Andrew is bouldering in Colorado. Johannah is ... well, no one ever knows where Johannah is at any given moment but we can feel her love every time the wind blows.

And Becky? (that's me). Becky is running the best pop culture vertical in the world called The Schmooze and she wants you to follow it on Facebook below so that you don't miss the next time Judge Judy says something crazy. All of you, but especially you, are welcome.
