Issue 1 | Winter 2013

Our inaugural issue is out. If you would like to publish your work with us, this would be a good place to start. Browse, read, contemplate each author and the agility of their writings. This issue of Atlas and Alice includes pieces that challenge our notion of intersections. There is sadness, humor, wild wit and excellent writing in each author’s work. And in the words of our EIC, “read the magazine and see how pieces speak to each other, how individual pieces might speak to themselves, and most of all, how they speak to you”. Happy readings!

In this inaugural issue, you’ll find great works by:

Ian Bodkin – Paul David Adkins – Robert Vivian – Deborah Purdy – Ashely Boswell – Sam Martone – Drew Pisarra – Jack Caseros – Kaitlyn Duling – Aimee Henkel – Danielle Hunt – Thomas Luckie III – Marie Nunalee – Brian Clifton – Priscilla Atkins
