This issue of Cutleaf is now at the Mag Stand. It features excerpts from Vanishing Point, Dirk Marple’s hybrid memoir on handwritten postcards with original images. The text and images were part of ninety-two numbered postcards mailed over time to Marple’s thesis advisor, Jenny Boully.
Cutleaf is an online journal published twice monthly. It’ a project of EastOver Press, an independent literary press specializing in collections of short stories, essays, and poetry. The first issue officially launched in February 2021 with “How Gretel Gets Her Groove Back” by Lauren K. Alleyne, “Sliders” by Wesley Browne, and “Eat Before You Go” by E.C. Salibian.
They feature fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and cross-genre work by both new and established writers. Issue 10 published in June 2021 features poetry by George Ella Lyon, fiction by Kevin Fitton, and nonfiction by Matt Muilenberg.
