Magazine Stand :: Chestnut Review – Fall 2022
I feel as though I know Chestnut Review almost better than any other literary magazine out there because of how much they are constantly doing both in the larger literary community and in creating a community of “stubborn artists” of their own. In addition to their quarterly, online publication and print annual, they are currently planning a January retreat in Mexico (one spot left at the time of this writing) and another in North Wales in June. They also offer affordably-priced (because I’ve seen the gamut) workshops for drop-in writing, NaNo, chapbook editing and publishing, submissions and editorial processes, flash fiction, professional series topics, and more. And right now, they’re holding a raffle (free to enter) to win an exclusive call with editor Maria S. Picone along with their Free Feedback Friday Twitter drawings. So much going on! But let’s not forget the reason for this post – the Fall 2022 issue! It opens with a conversation with Seif-Eldeine Och, Poetry Chapbook Winner, and Mark Blackford, Chapbook Editor, and includes prose, poetry, and art by Mike Yunxuan Li, Noel Cheruto, Eileen Tomarchio, Lana Hall, Rachel Lastra, Maya Hersh, Abduljalal Musa Aliyu, Isibeal Owens, Njoku Nonso, Jessie Zechnowitz Lim, Claire Scott, Guy D’Annolfo, Biswadarshan Mohanty, Joan Kwon Glass, Taylor Yingshi, Denny Marshall, Lindsey Grant, Matina Vossou, and Kelly Sargent.
