New York: Give Me Your Best or Your Worst
by Elizabeth Crowens , Barbara Krasnoff, Charles Salzberg, Marco Conelli, Randee Dawn, Richie Narvaez, RJ Koreto, Steven Van Patten, Tom Straw and Triss Stein View author's profile page

Overview


Multi-genre author and former professional photographer, Elizabeth Crowens, pitched the idea of this book to the City Artist Corps grant committee as a New York-themed photo-illustrated anthology using her own photography, inspired by her popular posts on Facebook, Caption Contest: Give Me Your Best or Your Worst. Every day, she'd nd a humorous or provocative vintage photo, and authors, readers, librarians, and publishing professionals worldwide would react by posting their witty commentaries which were often hilarious. This came as a welcome reprieve throughout the pandemic when all of us needed to have a good dose of laughter on a daily basis. When she unexpectedly received this grant, she reached out to ten other authors in the Greater New York City area from diverse backgrounds, who all contributed to the literary legacy of New York. In a race against time with a stiff deadline, she wore many hats from editorial to book design to produce this anthology.
