New Lit on the Block :: Umbrella Factory
In his Editor’s Note, Anthony ILacqua says that a recent call-to-jury-duty experience made him want to “campaign the world – everyone needs to read. And what a better place this world can be if everyone did.” Umbrella Factory is his effort, combined with fellow “workers” Oren Silverman, Mark Dragotta, and Jana Bloomquist at jumping into this very campaign. And, they are joined in good company with the writers featured in this first issue: Fiction by John Mcmanus, T.M. De Vos, T.L. Crum, Elinor Abbott; Nonfiction by Samantha L. Robinson, Charles Malone, Elizabeth Bernays; Poetry by John Mcmanus, Samantha L. Robinson, Mathias Svalina, Erin Costello, Justin Runge, Serena Chopra, Seth Landman.
Umbrella Factory is open for submissions. Their site also includes a feedback forum and information about workshops held in the Denver, CO area.
