Magazine Stand :: The Meadow – 2022

The Meadow literary magazine from Truckee Meadows Community College 2022 issue cover image

Hailing from Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada, The Meadow has established itself as a leading annual literary publication with works being recognized by Utne Read, the Pushcart Prize anthology, The Best American Sports Writing anthology, and the Best American Essay anthology. Co-Editors Lindsay Wilson and Robert Lively have maintained one of the few literary journals in the country that publishes their students alongside experienced writers and artists and involves students in the production as well as board oversight of operations. Add to this: the publication is completely free. Print copies are distributed on campus, in the community, and to contributors, and a complete copy of the publication is available to read online via Flipbook platform. I only just started to read the 2022 edition, and am already taken by the opening poems: “The Ambulance Took Away Another Person Today” by Alice “Lucky” Lacerenza, “filaments” by Robin Gow, “plenty” and “big love” by Kolbe Riney, “Minor Miracles in Time Travel” and “Thirty Thieves and the Thunder Chief” by Patrick Meeds, “A Tooth is a Tree” by Matthew Burnside, and “The Walk” by Merlin Ural Rivera. With 74 contributors, this is the kind of magazine to “carry along” or bookmark to read whenever you can spare a free moment or hunker into and be swept away page after page.
