    Club Plum Literary Journal cover image

    In this issue’s introductory essay, “Claim What is Ours,” Club Plum online literary journal founding editor Thea Swanson writes, “Freedom and democracy are fragile. They are precious, and they shouldn’t be precious. They should be mundane. // Writing and creating, for some of us, is mundane, and for that, we should take pause and treasure our ability to write and to create, to share our words and images, knowing how closely these acts are tied to our freedom, to our democracy.” Sharing in these very acts are the contributors to this issue: flash fiction by David Hartley, Amy Holman, Jen Schneider, and Nora Studholme; prose poetry by Kevin Carey, Larua Goldin, Sophia Holme, and Nicole Flaherty Kimball; and art by Nicola Brayan, Phyllis Green and Sabahat Ali Wani.

  • Sponsor Spotlight: Club Plum Literary Journal

    Club Plum logoClub Plum Literary Journal is a new quarterly online literary magazine founded in 2019. They have released three issues to date with a focus on flash fiction, prose poetry, and art from both emerging and established writers. Their aim is to act as a “temporary entrance into a literary world of empathy, art, and sound. A place to take and to give.”

    They keep their site clean and free of ads and distracting elements so the reader’s experience is focused on the absorbing tales and imagery unravelling in voices either understated or lyrical, but always powerful. “This is a safe place. Our hearts have been pummeled; our minds have been toyed with. We see clearly now. This is a place for thinkers and doers. A place to turn our pain into wondrous works of art.”

    Check out their basic submission information and full publisher’s description at their listing on NewPages.
