Far East: Everything Just As It Is
"Everything Just As It Is" is the first published book by The Far East Project, an ongoing attempt to create a people’s history of San Diego’s semi-rural East County, told through the prism of its residents’ perspectives, curated through solicited stories, poems, photography, journalism and more. The Far East publishes print and digital books featuring exclusive content, periodically produces showcases throughout the Southern California region, and leads initiatives to strengthen the community and its economy.
"Everything Just As It Is" was made possible through a Creative Catalyst Program Fellowship, awarded by the San Diego Foundation to Justin Hudnall through the sponsorship of San Diego Writers Ink. Capturing the essence of San Diego's East County through curating the stories, poems, photographs and narratives of over 40 contributors--established authors and beginning writers alike--"Everything Just As It Is" communicates the feel of the region through these many and varied voices. Currently available as a numbered, limited edition print featuring letter-pressed jacket and CD audiobook of select contributors accompanied with music from "labs."
