Based in Chicago, but with "values that extend beyond borders," Anobium aims to "print literature in a digital world" and do so with quality and brevity, keeping the volume small (5"x&', 84pp), portable, durable (laminated matte cover with 55lb stock), and accessible ($10).
Anobium's masthead is: Senior Editor Mary J. Levine, MFA; Managing Editor Benjamin D. van Loon, BA; Assistant Editors Jon-Erik Means, BA, Michael Zielinski, BA, Lauren Monokian, BA; Illustrator & Assistant Designer Jacob van Loon, BFA; and Executive Administrator Sarah E. Docherty, BM.
Anobium: Volume 1 (Summer 2011) features new writing from Laura Carter, Jennifer Collins, William Doreski, Eric Evans, Ricky Garni, Jonathan Greenhause, Luke Irwin, Rich Ives, Eddie Jones, J.S. MacLean, Claire McCurdy, Bethany Minton, Thomas Mundy, Ben Nardolilli, James Payne, Stephanie Plenner, Graham Tugwell, Meredith Turits and Susan Yount.
