COG is honored to present an animated adaptation of Siamak Vossoughi's The Outdoor Movie, selected by Daniel Handler (AKA Lemony Snicket) as winner of the 2015-16 COG Page to Screen Awards.

LISTEN

COGITATE 6 - "Otherworldly"

Intangible. Fantastical. Welcome to an episode that starts with the raw, ethereal (stress on the "real") music of Azuah, takes a detour through the dystopian vision of writer Leonard Crosby, and concludes in conversation with Jeff VanderMeer, bestselling author of the new novel Borne as well as the Southern Reach trilogy.

 

INTERVIEW WITH

DANIEL HANDLER

Against our better judgment, we sent COG's editor into the trap-door-riddled home of "Lemony Snicket" series author Daniel Handler - armed only with a janky, borrowed camera and a busted microphone. Listen closely: hear the lens cap whirring. Look closely: see the fear in her eyes. Will she emerge unscathed, or will this be COG's last issue?

COG Interview with Daniel Handler

 
 
COG proudly announces the incoming 2017-18
COG Poetry Awards & COG Page to Screen Awards final judges:
luminary poet Major Jackson, and esteemed novelist Gish Jen. 
 
Contests will reopen in November 2017 and February 2018, respectively.

The Outdoor Movie is a mesmerizing evening: romantic, mysterious, flickering with wonder and curiosity and strange ideas and beautiful light. It’s over too soon and lingers in the brain like love, or at least a good movie about love. Like the characters in the story, I look forward to seeing more.
