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.

First Class – 心潔

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.

 

The Blotter – 势如破竹

势如破竹

The Blotter Magazine exists to nurture underground, outsider literature and art and to provide it to a wide audience.

We believe that the economic viability of good art and writing should not interfere with its life, liberty, or happiness; and we deliberately seek to avoid the pretension and “overintellectualism” for which the world of literature and art has become known.

In May, 2003, the magazine began distributing free at selected newsstands in the North Carolina Triangle area. Since then, our free distribution has expanded to other fine cities in the Southeast.

The material we publish is intelligent but we are anti-intellectual. We know that there is many a publication read only by its contributors and the occasional librarian. Our readers are an eclectic bunch, and our contributors run the gamut: precocious high-school kids, collegiate philosophers, working-class dogs surreptitiously typing during lunch, professional writers and artists, slackers, bartenders, and doctors, from all over the United States and Europe.

The November 2015 Issue of The Blotter is out now, featuring work by Annie Land, Jim Harrington, Shannon Brady, John Grey, Phil Juliano, The Dream Journal, and the short story, ‘势如破竹‘ by J H Martin.

If you are not in the North Carolina area, you can download a free PDF copy here.

FORTH – Drinking Shadows

 


Drinking Shadows

FORTH was founded in 2009 as a print publication in Los Angeles, and was relaunched as a digital magazine in June 2014.

In its digital pages, FORTH features a mixture of visual art, fiction, non-fiction and poetry, including the poem, ‘Drinking Shadows‘ by J H Martin, which you can read here.

Throughout history, the one element that has made us uniquely human is the ability to make art. This fascinating element of the human condition includes the capacity to think creatively, to produce ideas and images that help us figure out what our thoughts and feelings really mean, and to share them with the world at the click of a button. So here, in these strange digital pages, we explore, expose, and celebrate this forward-moving, always-evolving creative energy that makes us human.
