The Litography Project: a Super Rad Interactive Literary Map of San Francisco

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

From Mark Twain to Jack London to Jack Kerouac to Michelle Tea, San Francisco has always been a wondrous literary city.  Maybe it’s The City’s beauty or the fact that she’s always attracted misfits and weirdoes. Who knows, it’s almost impossible to explain where magic comes from. Nailing down where it’s been far easier though and that’s exactly  what The Litography Project is doing.

What is the Litography Project? I’m so glad you asked! According to their kickstarter page, “The Litography Project is an interactive and evolving multimedia map honoring San Francisco’s literary past, present and future.” Cool right? Everyone knows that San Francisco’s literary scene is pretty off the hook, and always has been, so The Litography Project will function:

as an online space for people to explore a variety of creative stories about San Francisco’s literary scene. We hope that by organizing stories on a map, we’ll help contextualize the people, places, events, and ideas of the city’s literary culture. And since there are so many different types of stories to be told about this place, we will utilize all different kinds of media to tell them – that’s where the multimedia comes in. There will be writing, illustrations, photography and audio. We’ll continue to add stories to the map on a regular basis in order to grow and evolve with our city.

This is something I’m super excited about and I want you to be excited about it too. Check out their Kickstarter video below and then go here to donate and receive rad prizes.
