Our monthly columnist Arden Hunter has started a new online literary magazine called Cutbow Quarterly! The magazine will be a showcase for new and exciting hybrid work. At Cutbow, a hybrid is defined as, “a piece that combines two forms and would not ‘work’ if one of those forms was taken away.” Visual, concrete, found, and erasure poetry, asemic writing, hermit crab pieces, lyrical flash, narrative verse, lettering art, and any other hybrid work are all of interest. If you would like to learn more about creating your own hybrid work, you can read Arden’s craft column, ‘It’s an experiment!’ here on JMWW.
There is no theme, and submissions for the first issue will be open for two days: July 1st and 2nd. Arden offers a swift turn around of two days, so all submissions will receive a response by July 4th. You can read the full submissions guide on Cutbow’s website, www.cutbowquarterly.com. Happy experimenting!
