Literary Arts is hosting a release party for basalt magazine this Thursday, September 13th, at our center at 925 SW Washington. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The evening will feature readings by basalt contributors:
A journal that pays attention to the overlapping worlds of literary and fine arts is something special, if not entirely unique. But, a journal that enables this marriage with such sensitivity and beauty is rare indeed. basalt is doing gorgeous and exciting work, not only with their print journal but though their website and commendable educational outreach projects. The real gift here is the extraordinary editorial attention to the ways in which the various media might speak to each other within the pages of a magazine.
