Out of more than 200 published and thriving writers in the city of Chicago, Newcity Lit's "Lit 50" has been chosen, and on the list is BOA's own Adam McOmber! McOmber's first book, short fiction collection This New and Poisonous Air, was published by BOA just last year, in June 2011. Stories from it have already received nominations for 2012 Pushcart Prizes and Best American Fantasy. It's clear: this Chicago wordsmith is getting noticed! Newcity Lit, an extension of Chicago's weekly Newcity magazine, is devoted to "Chicago's legendary culture of writing," as well as the "growing literary abundance" of the city. For the "Lit 50," it's goal is to reflect the "diversity of style, medium and genre" in the city's literature, as well as to introduce to the world new and emerging voices.
