|Weave issue 06 cover by deona fish|
First and foremost, we’re gearing up to release our sixth issue that is packed with poetry, flash, fiction and nonfiction that we hope will tickle your funny bone, engage your mind-grapes, quench your thirsty dark heart, and spawn new works of creativity! Issue 06 reveals the gray areas between pleasure and pain, beauty and ugliness. There is magic realism, realistic fiction, and fairy tales retold. This issue is also very socially current with pieces that speak to racism, sexism, war, and the price of fame. We know you will love this issue, featuring poetry by Nin Andrews, Naomi Ayala, Rebecca Dunham, and Sally Rosen Kindred. Fiction by Lauren Becker, Z.Z. Boone, Jane McCafferty and Mary O’Donnell. Artwork by Sarah Leavens and cover art by deona fish. Pre-order yours today!
Next Saturday, April 23rd at Remedy in Lawrenceville we will dance into spring and literature with our Spring Reading Celebration. Weave joins forces with Caper Literary Journal and Pear Noir! to bring you readings by Weave issue 05 contributors Nour Abdelghani, Karen Lizon and Dalena Moser; Pear Noir! contributors Tao Lin & Megan Boyle, Noah Cicero, Jordan Castro & Mallory Whitten, and Scott McClanahan; and Caper contributors Rae Bryant, Laura E. Davis and Chris Nold. Doors open at 7:30pm. $5 cover gets you a copy of Weave issue 05 at the door. RSVP on Facebook!
Weave is also excited to announce our first annual Poetry and Flash Fiction Contests for issue 07. Lisa Marie Basile will judge for poetry and Bridgette Shade will judge flash fiction. The winners in both genres receive $100 and publication in our next issue. There are also three honorable mentions in each category. $6 per entry. Please see our submission guidelines for more details.
Weave and local indie pop-up retailer Fleeting Pages are teaming up to do weekly workshops and readings to feature local poets and writers. If you are interested in helping lead a workshop with Weave and being a featured reader at a reading, please contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so excited spring has arrived! There will be more exciting news in the weeks to come. Stay tuned.
