“…an intriguing tale….Written in the form of a grant application, the story details the sufferings of the mythical city of Farsdale Massachusetts….Her conclusion is both tragic and macabre.”
–Robert Turner, Tangent Online
“This story, told as a grant application/project proposal, is some seriously dark business. Like, seriously dark. It follow the plan of one person to reach a new divinity, the former God and patron saint of the town, the patron saint of lost things, no longer actually answering prayers….a dark and twisted path, but the story makes it beautiful all the same.”

Dear Ms. Olsson,
COMMUNITY ARTS ACCESS GRANT PROPOSAL
THE THIRTEEN TUESDAYS PROJECT

There isn’t a city in the world that generates more prayers per capita than the city of Farsdale, Massachusetts. Yet, despite the hard work of Farsdale’s city council, its teachers, and its many outreach workers, most citizen prayers remain unanswered.
Farrago’s Wainscot is a quarterly online zine that collects the weird and sublime in fiction and poetry. Words cannot be arranged in too strange a fashion for Old Man Farrago, and FWA 1 is the collected assortment of stories from the first year of the Wainscot’s revival.
