Paper Darts, the Minneapolis-based literary arts magazine and independent publishing press, is going strong with its six-week pop-up store at SOOlocal, where it's hosted an impressive array of literary, music, art, and performance events. This Friday, the group will team up with the storytelling collective the Buoyant Group for a showcase of original tales told through various mediums. Members Kelsey Cramer, tom FRANK, Molly Baeverstad, Scotty Gunderson, Megan Hadley, and Jason Zabel will host an evening that promises to feature some unconventional storytelling methods. There will be video, models in bathing suits, and flash fiction written on doll torsos. The interactive event, titled Play Date, is the first of what Buoyant hopes to be quarterly events. Co-hosting the happening will be members from the Tangential, a creative writing and pop-culture blog, in anticipation of their new work-in-progress, Activitorium.
