|MANIFESTO||WHAT IS YIP?|
YIP is a publisher.
Originally conceived as a parodic donning of the vainglorious hyperbole of contemporary start-up culture, YIP has more recently become a fully functioning publishing house, responsible for an ever-increasing number of first-rate books and periodicals.
Today, half a century after 1967, YIP is committed to re-evaluating how works of art are created, encountered, circulated, and evaluated. In order to experiment with such processes YIP creates spaces (mostly in the form of books) and invites others to enter and do their best work. While artists of many different (self-professed) disciplines are currently working in YIP-created spaces, the majority seem to come from poetry and performance.

|Musical Theater Today||Co-Founding Editor's: Ben Van Buren & Lucas Tahiruzzaman Syed
Contributing Editors: Natasha Sinha, Shoshana Greenberg, Timothy Huang & Ian Axness
|Musical Theater Today is a new, yearly periodical inspired by the extraordinary variety of artists, institutions, and audiences engaged in the musical theatre world. While many endeavors across the industry appear to share individual artists (composers, performers, etc.), it seems that they rarely have the opportunity to come together in discussion. By gathering as many creative viewpoints as possible, MTT hopes to encourage artists in all aspects of the industry to continue to pursue diversity of narrative, performance, and production.
