The Adroit Journal is a triannual downloadable PDF publication edited by Peter LaBerge (Editor-in-Chief), Ameerah Arjanee and Magen Eissenstat (Poetry Genre Editors), Connor Cook and Kratika Mishra (Fiction Genre Editors), Michele Ang (Art/Photography Editor), and additional staff members.
LaBerge tells me, “The Adroit Journal was conceived for mainly two reasons: as a fundraising vehicle for an organization called Free the Children Organization, and as an opportunity for teenagers to come together to produce a collection of quality literature.” A link to Free the Children is provided on The Adroit Journal website, and donors make their contributions directly to the organization.
Readers can expect to find a complete variety of poetry and fiction within the pages of The Adroit Journal. “Often readers and contributors remark that they cannot find a singular type of work that The Adroit Journal considers,” LaBerge notes, “because we consider (and publish) all different kinds.”
Some of the many contributors to date include: Poetry – Carol Guess, Dorianne Laux, Annie Finch, Lee Upton, Matt Mauch, Laura Kasischke, Darlene Pag
