Publisher's description: december resumed publication in 2013 after a 32-year hiatus, maintaining its tradition of discovering emerging talent. december’s mission is to champion the work of unheralded writers and artists; celebrate fresh concepts from seasoned voices; and advocate for its writers in the literary, artistic, and general communities.

Many of december’s original contributors from the 1950s-80s continue to be involved in the magazine as advisory editors, including Marvin Bell, Rita Mae Brown, Grace Cavalieri, Michael Harper, William Kittredge, and Marge Piercy.
