Dear Seamas Cain,

I’m writing with hopes you’ll be willing to emoji-blurb Davis Schneiderman
<http://www.davisschneiderman.com/>’s debut short-story collection—*there
is no appropriate #emoji
 (Mad Hat Press <https://madhat-press.com/>, Fall 2019). The collection
features stories by Schneiderman and collaborations with Lance Olsen
<http://www.lanceolsen.com/>, Tim Guthrie <http://www.timguthrie.com/>, Stacey
Levine <http://www.staceylevine.com/>, Cris Mazza, and others.

Oscillating between stories and text and images from *The Museum of
Alternative History* <http://www.museumofalternativehistory.com/>,* #emoji
set “everywhere”: from the Greek island of Lemnos to a hovering Zeppelin to
a suburban street on the brink of solar catastrophe. *#emoji
a wide-eyed view of life in the death throes of the
Anthropocene—Schneiderman at his most prescient, predicting an endless
epoch of nothing-but-the-same.

What’s an emoji-blurb? Here are two examples:


            —David Shields, author of *Nobody Hates Trump More Than* *Trump*
 and *The Trouble with Men*

“*There is no appropriate *#😋 is a compelling 📖 overflowing with 😲 ideas,
captivating 👩👨, and 🌌 scenarios that will make you 😀 and 👀 and keep
you on your 👣.”

—Naiomi Joy Madera, middle-schooler

Your blurb will join a large number of others, forming an “image-wall” of
emoji-rich text to distort and reposition the practice of the blurb.

We’d need your blurb no later than June 15, 2019.

Here’s the link to the manuscript: *there is no appropriate #emoji

Thanks for considering it.
