The third issue of Structural Damage (L u n a r i ng) is out now. As our first issue of the new year (both gregorian and lunar) we're excited to set the new precedent for the year of the dog (1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030...). Personally, I am hoping to receive even more submissions that continue to experiment with color, shapes, textures, and words.
We have a small group of dedicated contributors that manage to amaze us even more each month. Trev Kubat is once again our cover artist (stay tuned for an interview next month!) and Felix P. Graham stuns us with SOME truly strange fiction. We also have interviews with the two phenomenal poets: Nina Savage and Paul Christiansen, who have both been published in previous issues.
There is a lot of new blood too: poets Katherine DeCoste and John Grey, fiction writers Jeff Nazzaro and Will Justice, and Spanish photographer David Rodríguez.
The suggested donation for a complete digital download of this thirty one page literary magazine is one dollar. Or, for only five dollars, we will print and mail you a physical copy. These donations are incredibly important because it costs $12 each month to keep the site up & running, (plus we need to pay for printing & shipping to send out free copies to artists that we feature). The more donations that we receive, the more we will be able to do for our contributors and readers, such as publishing anthologies, novellas, or other collections (and paying our contributors)..
If you like what we're doing here, please like us on facebook, or follow us on twitter/instagram. All three social media sites are /wekeepbuilding (facebook, instagram, twitter,) AND I have little links in our footer down below. I promise we aren't annoying (and we always follow back.)
Finally, as always, we are already looking for pieces for our next issue. Check out The Foundation for more information on how to submit, and feel free to shoot us an email if you have any questions. Share this site with yr friends and encourage the creative people that you know to share their brilliance with us.
So, please, read some of this phenomenal work, submit, donate, and support the arts on a global level.
