Publisher’s description: Inspired by the assemblage of Joseph Cornell, Shadowbox seeks the magic of transformation – taking the known, the familiar, the fact, and making it more. We publish contemporary nonfiction in all its forms and ambitions. Prose poetry. Lyric essay. Narrative memoir. Immersion journalism. Literary collage. We like edges. B-sides. Soul. Shadowbox as mirror. Shadowbox as portal. Published twice a year, each issue includes featured writings as well as interviews, book reviews, archival treasures and visual art. If you’re driven to explore the possibilities of nonfiction, please send us your work. We’d love to read it. As Thoreau once said, “The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
