First Times: An Interview

Continuing the trend of my former roommates’ undertaking cool extra-curricular projects, Maxwell Bevilacqua ’12 has plans to publish First Times, a collection of short pieces on firsts (not just of the sexual variety — though sharing those stories is strongly encouraged). Good news if you missed the deadline the last time we featured this project: he’s still seeking submissions. Want more details? Here’s a brief gchat interview I held with Max last week.

Wesleying: So, Max, what’s this I’ve been hearing about something called First Times? Does it have anything to do with Wescam?

Maxwell Bevilacqua: Wescam might have something to do with first times but First Times, a collection of short stories I’m putting together, probably has nothing to do with Wescam

(I can still be found as a graduate student btw)

W: A collection of short stories you’re putting together, huh? Sounds like Stethoscope Press. Is that true? I should add that I’m not exactly sure what Stethoscope is.

MB: This is not a stethoscope press publication (though the wonderful Piers Gelly ‘13 gave me some great advice) but it is an independent, supa creative, trendy thing I’m doing just like Stethoscope Press

and hey – you should see a doctor for that!! 

Max Bevilacqua Wants To Know About Your First Time

Maxwell Bevilacqua ’12 is just really, really curious, bless his soul:

What was your first time?

MAX BEVILACQUA ’12 wants to know for a book entitled First Times: A Collection of Stories.

You (and anyone you know here, or outside of Wesleyan) are encouraged to submit no more than 1000 words, about any first time experience you have had. I hope it goes without saying — no topic is off-limits. The goal of this publication is simply to collect the wonderful stories we all have, but seldom have the opportunity or prompt to share.

Selected entries will be published anonymously unless one indicates a preference otherwise.

Deadline: May 1 at 11:59 p.m.
