Support RUMFA student Heather Cox as she spreads the good word(s)!
Forget being a full time student, Heather Cox is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Ghost Ocean Magazine. This online literary magazine publishes writing that is clever, surprising, engaging and downright fun to read. Today marks the launch of Issue 2, which features poetry from Susan Slaviero, flash fiction from Cee Martinez, an interview with Chicago independent press Featherproof's Christian Tebordo, and two micro reviews of Featherproof's Patrick Somerville's short story collection The Universe in Miniature in Miniature. Feast your eyes!
Want to get involved? Ghost Ocean is launching a Kickstarter campaign to help them get to the 2011 AWP Conference in Washington, D.C.. Donations will be used to obtain a book fair table--where they will hand out lots of Ghost Ocean goodies, and have the magazine available for browsing. Pledges of $5 and up will all be met with fun, creative rewards! The Kickstarter is open for donations until 1:00 AM on December 1st.
Check out Issue 2, donate some of that pocket change, and look for Ghost Ocean and other Roosevelt affiliated writing at AWP 2011.
