New Lit on the Block :: Magazine1

Newly launched biannual online Magazine1 operates out of Bookstore1 in Sarasota, Florida (hence the name) and publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, visual art, and hybrid works. “We’re really open to anything if you have something you don’t think fits nicely into the above categories,” says Editor-in-Chief Ben Kerns. Connections are what matter to Kerns, who hopes readers of Magazine1 are able to connect with something they didn’t think they’d connect with at first glance. “I hope that when we feature stranger pieces or pieces that make the reader reach a little further, that someone out there who encounters them for the first time can find their world widened a little bit by them.”

Magazine Stand :: Agni – 99

The newest issue of AGNI (99) focuses on the places that remain. Contributors struggle with displacement and “home,” belonging and having to establish, resisting and being able to simply be. Partly devoted to a major new portfolio of writing from the Central American and Mexican diasporas, AGNI 99 unites around bewilderment and the force of clarity—discovering how we landed here and acknowledging where we stand. Geography extends beyond the folio, in poems by Mosab Abu Toha and Mercè Rodoreda (trans. Rebecca Simpson); fiction by Steven Archer and Urvi Kumbhat; essays by Lia Purpura and Marion Winik; and more. Diego Isaias Hernández Méndez, Guatemala’s “accident painter,” sets the vivacity and tumble right in front of us, on the cover.

New Lit on the Block :: Lodestar Lit

Twice a year online, Lodestar Lit publishes anything literary in style, including short stories, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and one-act plays available as a downloadable PDF. Their mission is nothing less than grand transformations – both in literature and within the individual creators, both present and into the future.

The editors explain, “The initial inspiration for our magazine’s name came from Carl Sagan’s 1980 documentary, Cosmos, in which he says that we are all ‘starstuff,’ or, in other words, stardust. Based on ideas of cosmology, we are living, breathing stardust endowed with consciousness, and we create reasons to live through art, science, philosophy, etc. Thus, we transcend ourselves through art like how a mathematician discovers a formula and transcends themself in their discovery. As authors, our writing is a guiding star – a lodestar – that leads us to new ways of living and being.”

Magazine Stand :: The Common – Issue 27

Amherst’s Whiting Award-winning magazine, The Common joins the arrival of flowers and birds with its new issue (27). For the past eight years, the magazine, whose mission is to deepen our individual and collective sense of place, has published a portfolio of fiction translated from Arabic, transporting English-language readers to places from Morocco to Palestine. This year’s fiction comes from Chad, South Sudan, and Eritrea, and it explores non-linear time, the resilience and failure of love, and the corrosive effects of political instability. Also featured is a new story from Chlorine author Jade Song, an essay from ANGI co-editor Sven Birkerts, and three Hawaiian Pidgin poems excerpted from a forthcoming Kaya Press anthology.

Lit Mag Covers :: Picks of the Week – May 13, 2024

Lit Mag Covers: Picks of the Week recognizes cover art and designs for literary magazines, whether in print or online. These are chosen solely at the discretion of the Editor. Enjoy!

This gorgeous cover on the Spring-Summer 2024 issue of Third Coast is a digital collage by Ashley Miller.

The cover of Conjunctions print issue 82, themed “Works & Days,” features the artwork of Jacob Lawrence, Watchmaker (1946) with cover design by Jerry Kelly, New York.

As a fan of Jaws, I couldn’t resist this Spring 2024 cover image on Fence, and this great story to go along with it: “Reports of series of shark attacks in July 1918 along the New Jersey Shore went viral in that era’s media, gripping the public’s attention. On July 12, the shark found its way into the freshwater Matawan Creek, attacking bathers and self-appointed rescuers at this exact location in Matawan, NJ, where, painted on a train bridge spanning the water, one can enter The Matawan Man-Eater Mural” (Tattoo Bob 2020).

Magazine Stand :: Good River Review – Issue 7

If Good River Review had an aesthetic, it’s that they don’t embrace one aesthetic. Rather the editors, both on the masthead and among their graduate students, only look for writing that excites, writing that avoids sameness. Within this issue, readers will find an essay by Davis McCombs, arguably best known for his award-winning collections of poetry; “Lizard Dreams,” flash fiction by Norie Suzuki; Danni Quintos’s poetry for young adults; and a review of Paisley Redkal’s West: A Translation, which collects poetry and essays in one book-length work. The subjects in Issue 7 are as various as the approaches. Readers will find writing that launches with the Electric Slide to that which describes a good deal of twerking.

The editors also include a reprint work that has been previously published or produced in the hope of giving that writing the extra attention it deserves. This issue features an excerpt from Terry Kennedy’s beautiful book-length elegy, What the Light Leaves Hidden, which dares to suggest grief can be seductive. An excerpt from “Animal Kingdom” is also included, a short story by Kristin Gentry from her debut collection Mama Said. Set in Louisville, the story presents Derby rituals familiar to the locals’ hometown but lesser known outside our city limits.

Magazine Stand :: The Lake – May 2024

The May 2024 issue of The Lake is now online featuring new poems from Melanie Branton, Kirsty Crawford, Sandy Feinstein, Paul McDonald, Bruce McRae, Gordon Meade, Sandra Noel, Miguel Rodríguez Otero, Beate Sigriddaughter, and Sharon Whitehill. Readers also review published poetry collections, including Jean Atkin’s High Nowhere, Anne Caldwell’s Neither Here Nor There, and Marsha de la O’s Creature. “One Poem Reviews” share a single poem from recent book publications, this month spotlighting Rhian Elizabeth Marian Kaplun Shapiro.

Magazine Stand :: Arkana – Issue 16

Arkana Issue 16 cover image

Magazine Stand :: Superpresent – Spring 2024

Superpresent is an art and literature magazine that puts equal emphasis on visual art and the written word. The theme for Spring 2024 is “survival.” Survival has been a central theme in literature — and life — since the beginning. Odysseus, Moses, Job, Ishmael, Jane Eyre all found ways to survive physical, spiritual, and emotional challenges of the first order. The ways in which survival is marked, however, may have changed. In addition to heroes and their journeys (see, for instance, in this issue of Superpresent, Sharon Kopriva’s paintings of iconic women and Crawdad Nelson’s “Walking Home in the Rain”), received divinations are presented (see Duncan Forbes’ “Cappella de Ossos,” Charter Weeks’ “Preacher Man,” and Mouse Mikala’s “Moaning on Christian Radio”) and encounters with beasts, lots of beasts (see Sharon Whitehill for spiders; Al Salwin for rats; Chelsie Kreitzmn for snakes; Diane Raptosh for roosters; Luis Angel Abad for chimps, piglets and tigers; Laura McCullough for koi; and Majid Bazei for dogs). Surviving relationships with oneself is explored in Cori Matusow’s “Tomboy,” while Elisa Manzini’s “Teeth” vividly describes surviving one’s abusers. Science strives to serve as a survival mechanism in Erica Miriam Fabri’s “Quantum Entanglement is the Scientific Explanation of Love.”

Magazine Stand :: Wordrunner eChapbooks – Issue 51

Wordrunner eChapbooks has released its 14th anthology and 51st issue. The theme is DISPLACEMENT. Who gets displaced? Sundered families, troubled or innocent youth, lonely elders, immigrants, prisoners, mental health workers (and their clients), anyone in the path of a hurricane, native populations. What gets displaced? Glaciers, planets, blackworms. Explore these possibilities with fiction by William Cass, Julian Ford, Jaryd Porter, Terry Sanville, Jay B. Shearer; nonfiction by Hugh Findlay, J.D. Mathes, Colleen Wells; and poetry by Kathleen Bryson, Chris Bullard, Hoyt Rogers. “In Strange Company,” nonfiction by J.D. Mathes was selected as Editor’s Choice for this issue with “Drift,” fiction by Jaryd Porter, receiving Honorable Mention from the 2023 fiction collection submissions.

Magazine Stand :: Brilliant Flash Fiction – March 2024

The March 2024 issue of Brilliant Flash Fiction’s tenth year of publication is an oddball mixture. (And please note that one must scroll down through the issue to read the stories, exactly as one scans a menu of tasty dishes.) Ever wonder what your pancreas does when it steps out of your body? Scroll down to read “La Dolce Vita,” by Jedediah Smith. And, in case you’re wondering, the strange artwork illustrating the March issue consists of photos taken inside a car during an automated carwash.

“Marion Checks In,” by Norwegian Kjetil Jansen, explores a bit of what-if Psycho movie territory, and speaking of Psycho, “DINNER SERVICE” by Suzanne Johnston is every waitress’ nightmare. The top story, “Softee,” by Elizabeth Gassman, involves a bewitching ice cream truck driver. “Allerednic” (Cinderella spelled backwards) by Rachel Rodman is a never-ending hard-luck story, and there is so much high-quality flash fiction here to read, including the off-beat “Miss Purse” by Ezra Solway, and “Poppy is My Half-Sister” by Zach Murphy; “Minotaur Dresses in the Dark” by Emma Goldman-Sherman, and “Neil” by Ende Mac. Oh yes, and that story about a crow’s text messages, by George Walker. Read it all and feel your imagination s t r e t c h …

Host Nick deCourville takes listeners on a journey through the art of living with a disability. Looking at our own lives, we may often choose to make positive changes that help us live a more authentic existence. On the flipside, we may decide that something we have always done is no longer in our best interest, and we choose to let it go. Throughout this episode, the presenting authors share the essential elements they have found to living a life crafted creatively.

Episode six of the Kaleidoscope podcast features readings from authors Hareendran Kallinkeel, Carrie Hinton, Aisha Ashraf, Nancy J. Fagan, Stacie Eirich, Tim Campbell, Geri Lipschultz and Kelsie Bennett.

Magazine Stand :: Broadsided – Spring 2024

“Literature & art for your walls & streets,” Broadsided Spring 2024 brings readers a bright palette and strong patterns – both visual and linguistic. This new folio dances over and along the deep emotions and, in many cases, sorrows held in the poems. Isn’t that the essence of spring? Readers can enjoy the color echoes between “Cytokine,” “Graffiti on Moving Day,” and “Tall(grass) Prairie Song.” “Highlights” and “Tomcat” use patterning in ways that ask us to consider how memory and desire repeat themselves in our minds. The enigmatic, powerful images of “Black Dissection” and “Pelt” draw us in to look more closely, to spend more time with each. We ask ourselves: what does abstraction open? What about enigmatic photographs? How do images of childhood linger for us, perhaps as afterimages?

Magazine Stand :: Blue Collar Review – Winter 2023-24

The Winter 2023-24 issue of Blue Collar Review is a collection of poems, short stories, literary reviews, and illustrations that “speaks to the times,” the editors write. “It speaks of losses, personal and financial. Poets here rail at the utter corruption of empire and of those of us sacrificed to pad the pockets of the Pentagon and profiteers. There are poems of medical dread, of the difficulties of becoming old, ill and cast aside. There are poems on homelessness, a story on human trafficking and poems on the proliferation of guns and violence in our own country as well as on our export of them around the world. [ . . . ] What this underscores is the desperate need for systemic change — for revolution. That requires building a critical mass which includes all of us.”

New Lit on the Block :: Shadowplay

Shadowplay is the name of the new annual publication of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry edited by students in the MFA in Creative Writing program at the University of Arkansas – Monticello. “Gripped by the idea of shadows and their dependence on light,” says Editor-in-Chief Christian Chase Garner, “we wanted to create a magazine that would highlight the intersection of these two and the liminal spaces often found there. Shadowplay is also a kinetic act; there is always movement. The word ‘play’ also reflects the brighter side of the dichotomy.”

Garner says Shadowplay was initiated to fill a literary gap. “Our university has not had a singular, long-standing literary magazine over the years, so we wanted to create one that was high-aiming and that carried weight in the writing world. We wanted a magazine that would be a home for diverse voices anywhere on their writing journey, one that would help bring clarity to the light and dark of the human condition.”
