Ecotone: Reimagining Place

Each issue of Ecotone brings together the literary and scientific, the personal and biological, the urban and rural. Much of the writing we publish addresses the idea of place—overlapping habitats both real and aesthetic. We aim to bridge the gap between science and culture, to break out of the pen of the purely literary and wander freely among the disciplines.

Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week, each chosen by today’s best authors or editors. Each issue includes an editor’s note written by that week’s partner, introducing you to the work and their mission. In this age of distraction, we’re uncovering writing that’s worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we’re giving great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.

We love, prefer free verse and flash fiction–words with passion, voice, and place.

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts is concerned with reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. These acts of attention explore the close listening inherent not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by Whitman's assertion that "Reading is a gymnast's act," we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one's environment through ekphrasis, phenomenology, queering, conceptual multiplicity, density and difficulty.

Eyeshot

Eyeshot is internationally accessible. Fiction, photographs, rants, reviews, links, essays, and other unclassifiables are accepted and declined. We pay in dissemination and validation, however meager. We tend to like things that are denser (not so quick to include space breaks between sentences), that are somewhat elusive and inventive and overblown languagewise and not-so-sane aesthetically.
