MEMORIOUS 13 & No-Fee Poetry Contest

Dear Readers,

We’re proud to announce the very lucky Issue 13 of Memorious, featuring fiction by Abby Frucht and James Scott, and poetry by Hadara Bar-Nadav, Jennifer Chang, Jason Schneiderman, Brian Barker, David Roderick, and Katrina Vandenberg, among others, plus an interview of Linda Gregerson by Adam Day. For those of you who enjoyed Sean Singer’s poet sketches in issue 3, you’ll find he’s back in our views section, bringing us Stanley Kunitz.

You’ll notice a different sort of cover for this issue: a series of five paintings, and therefore five rotating covers, by the wonderful artist Anna Shuleit.
For those of you who live in New York, we hope you will take the opportunity to see the cover paintings in person by visiting Anna Shuleit’s show “Two People Ago” which opens at the Coleman Burke Gallery, 638 West 28th Street (ground floor), in New York on Thursday, October 22nd, from 6-8 pm. The show will be up until November 28.

We’re also pleased to announce a special no-fee contest offered by Memorious. We are currently looking for a poem or a sequence of poems to be set to music as a new vocal work in the genre of art song by composer Randall West. The work will be performed and recorded by The Beacon Street Chamber Players in Chicago, and a recording of the work will be produced to be included in an upcoming issue of Memorious. Submissions should be previously unpublished and range from 200-1000 words. Send your submission (both pasted in your email and as a word .doc or .rtf document) to by November 15, 2009. The winner will be notified by December 1st, 2009 and the results will be announced shortly thereafter.

For news, events, pictures and between issue announcements, we hope you'll join our Facebook group.

As always, thank you for reading!

All Best,
