The End of SunDryed Affairs

January 5, 2012


It is with great regret that I am announcing the end of SunDryed Affairs. While Kyla and I were quite ambitious to put together a place for distinct black voices to come together and share their works, we at this time just haven’t had the ability to sustain this publication the way we wanted. In […]

On Management and Woody Allen

December 7, 2011


by Anthony Dean-Harris I like to think of myself as a misanthrope. Sure, this sort of thinking doesn’t seem all that healthy and I’m probably isolating myself in large part because I’m succumbing to my deep-seeded fear of rejection, but I still find I’m relatively productive when other people aren’t involved in many things I […]

Five Tips (That You Won’t Find Anywhere Else) for Living with Others

December 6, 2011

Night of the Living Indifference

October 26, 2011


by Anthony Dean-Harris There are things in this world that confound me. There are things in this world that seem to alight the masses but leave me absolutely behind. There are things in this world for which folks seem to have complete adoration that go over my head quite magnificently. There are times I wish […]

Things My Roommates Probably Think of Me

October 25, 2011


by Dalia Bishop I live with four guys. I use “guys” instead of “men” because they still use bed sheets for window curtains. (I don’t mean any criticism by that-it’s just where I arbitrarily draw the distinction). They’re nice guys and I can’t complain about them as far as roommate set-ups go–they do their dishes, […]
