Curating Alexandria: 阳光

阳光 (Sunlight) - J H MARTIN 2018

阳光

Curating Alexandria is a new web and eBook publication dedicated to supporting new fiction and other new works of art centered around or inspired by classical mythology, folklore and legend.

To anyone paying attention, the world of publishing has radically changed in the last decade. To say that the market is crowded is an understatement. Social media allows anyone and everyone to present their lives as celebrity, to chatter in endless self promotion. Self publishing has lowered the bar for what creations enter the market. For many readers and authors, this has been a frustrating turn of events. Curating Alexandria exists, not to add to the noise, but to offer interested readers a well curated, well edited collection of emerging talent.

Their first anthology is now on sale and features new works on classic themes from artists all over the globe, including 阳光 – a new short piece of prose by J H Martin.

To help them continue to support new writing talent and to share the beauty of new works of art centered around or inspired by the most timeless of themes, you can purchase your own paperback copy of the anthology here.

心潔

First Class Literary Magazine publishes handwritten fiction, non-fiction, reviews, art, poetry, critical essays and other experimental forms that can fit on a postcard.

You save a postcard because of the memory it triggers, because it carries meaning that extends far beyond its petite format. You read into its lines — nearly illegible chicken scratch about the rose garden leaning from the edge of Lake Superior, the strange snapshot of palpable uncertainty — for embedded details of place and hope and humanity.

Every Monday they publish a new postcard and this week they feature the postcard, 心潔 (Xin Jie) by J H Martin, which you can read here.
