Elephant Summer: a collection of all things elephant, published on notimetosayit.com during the summer of 2009 by 35 writers and artists. The collection contains artwork, stories, poems and prose all centered around an elephant theme.
This project started as a lark by writer/blogger xTx who wanted her blog to be occupied by more than dead space when she went away on multiple vacations during the summer. She deemed it Elephant Summer and put out a call for anything elephant to be sent her way and received an unexpectedly enthusiastic response from her readers. Elephant Summer ended up being extended into October and turned into an ebook!
Writers and poets in Elephant Summer include: Ben Brooks, Dennis Mahagin, Crispin Best, Sam Pink, Mel Bosworth, R.C. Miller, Ani Smith, Matt DeBenedictis, Janey Smith, Roxane Gay and Nate Innomi to name a few.
Elephant Summer is edited by xTx, a writer living in Southern California. You can find her writing in places like PANK, Smokelong, decomP, elimae, Dogzplot, and >Kill Author. Her e-book “Nobody Trusts a Black Magician” is available for free at nonpress.
Due to the overwhelming success of last year's "Summer", there is a call again this year with the new theme of Zombies. Zombie Summer is now in full swing and can be found on notimetosayit.com. And here, the direct link to the Elephant e-book:
