STRAWBERRY PRESS MAGAZINE
VOLUME ONE ISSUE FOUR
Volume One, Issue Four of Strawberry Press Magazine is our largest issue to date. All goes well with Strawberry Press. Our website has a new look. Thanks to my friend Patricia for that! She sort of grilled us about its shortcomings until we gave in and updated it. We’ll be working on it all the time now, so check back often. We’ve been adding new writers and new material to the site. It’s good to have things back up and running. We were slowing down for a minute there.
This issue of Strawberry Press features new fiction by writers Billy Ramone and Brian Seabolt. Billy Ramone is new to the press, but Brian’s work can be found on the “Gardens” page of our website. There are also a few emails on the website that Brian and I have shot back and forth arguing this and that point about literature. You should give them a gander on the “Freestyles” page.
This issue also features a long perspective on a night I spent locked up in the slam. An interesting piece, and one that covers (as far as I could gather) the perspectives of several people who were locked up with me. It’s written more like fiction than an essay, and I hope you enjoy it. Finally I begin this issue with a short fiction piece that’s a nod to Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Baudelaire. Happy Halloween, folks.
