PERIGEE 23 is Out! Open Call for Anniversary Issue.
We are pleased to bring you our 23rd issue, hot off the presses. You don't want to miss this issue, which kicks off our 2009 Fiction Contest (Guest Judge: James Brown) with an over-sized fiction section and two book reviews. The short stories alone will keep you entertained for days: Nine stories by multiple Pushcart nominees and winners, novelists, contest champions, and skilled wordsmiths all. We're also publishing an interview with poet Jack Marshall, five excellent memoirs, and six meticulously written and carefully selected poems.
Issue 23 features the watercolor paintings of Derek McCrea, a US Army Infantry Combat Soldier with two tours in Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division, who has been painting since the summer of 1984.
After six years, we continue to be impressed and inspired by this process we—our readers, our writers, our editors and designers—continue to define and re-define. It's something remarkable. We hope you will join us in celebrating this adventure of literature and art, brought to you free-of-charge and with no strings attached. Our gift, yours and Perigee's alike—our shared amusement, our little treasure.
We hope you enjoy Perigee's 23rd issue, and continue to read, write, and send work our way. [Submission Period: #24 (December 15, 2008 - March 1, 2009 for our April 15th anniversary issue. Online form at http://www.perigee-art.com/7389/submit_live.php. Response by April 7th, 2009]
