At long last, our 1 year anniversary issue is here. Sorry for the wait but we hope, as you enjoy Blake Palmer’s art and the poetry of Bryan Thomas Rice, you will find that it was well worth it. Thanks to both our artist and our poet, and all of our patient readers! Click on the photo to be redirected to Issue #9.
Memory is a tricky and often unreliable thing. I always admire when essayists acknowledge this in their writing rather than pretending that their recollection of things is perfect, or the only version that matters. In her essay “Black and White” Jesse Carty gives us a great example of how a writer can smoothly clue the reader in on these “tricky” moments of memory, and she does it in a way that only adds to the overall style of her essay. When you pair that with the disjointed, yet lovely, feel of Michelle Montrose Larsen’s painting, this issue of new graffiti: Literature on the Streets provides readers with unique picture of memory in action.
The new graffiti Publishing staff is pleased to present you with the 6th issue of new graffiti: Literature on the Streets! We hope that we’ve presented the work of Jesse Parent and Adrienne Petersen Taeoalii in a manner that not only does them justice, but possibly–by combining them–deepens the already profound ideas they bring forth.
