Publisher’s description: Founded in 2009, Consequence Magazine is an international literary magazine, addressing the culture and consequences of war. Each spring Consequence publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, reviews, translations, and visual art. Each print issue contains a special section featuring international work: Israeli and Palestinian, Persian, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Iraqi, and Kurdish. The magazine actively seeks out translated work from around the world.
Consequence Online features new work weekly: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, translations, interviews, and reviews. The magazine also sponsors events through the OF CONSEQUENCE forum. Authors include Nguyen Phan Que Mai, Teresa Fazio, MC Armstrong, and Phil Klay.
As one of our readers wrote: “It's not that the work of Consequence is vital—in an America mired in a forever foreign war, that's self-evident. It's that the work of Consequence is excellent, consistently piercing and true, devoted to hard reckoning and hard peace and writers who believe in both. When a new issue of Consequence arrives, I think of ole' Babel's wisdom: 'A well-thought-out story doesn't need to resemble real life. Life itself tries with all its might to resemble a well-crafted story.' Shards of real life on the page—that's what Consequence offers, better than any literary magazine going today.”
