It’s the end of the year, and we know all that extra money you’ve made from your hundreds of publications in lit journals is burning a hole in your pocket. We have just the place for you to spend it. Pay it forward by giving to these awesome Los Angeles literary nonprofits, just in time for #GivingTuesday.
The editors of Exposition Review love Lit Crawl L.A., and we’re excited to be among those chosen to host an event at this bar crawl turned literary extravaganza. On October 25, we gathered in NoHo with some of our favorite multi-genre short form writers for “L.A. in a Flash,” one of our signature #ExpoPresents micro-readings/workshops. Read on for all the flash-y details.
Exposition Review is excited to announce that we’ll be opening submissions for our 2018 issue this Friday, September 15!
We accept fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and scripts for stage & screen, as well as visual art & comics. We also welcome experimental works and love hybrid forms! Submissions will be open through December 15, 2017.
The theme for this year is “Orbit.”
When we set out to publish Exposition Review’s “IX Lives” issue, our first online issue, we knew there was a world of opportunity before us. As our journal evolved, we leaned into the digital space and opened up to new ways of sharing narratives—such as Claudia Rankine and John Lucas’s incredibly powerful and timely “Situation 6” Video Essay.
Exposition Review has always been a multi-genre journal, publishing prose, poetry, and stage & screen. Yet we’ve always been aware that for the latter category, the plays we publish are not in their final form: they are meant to be performed in front of an audience. That’s why Exposition Review is so excited to announce that we’ll be helping one of our plays transcend the page!
What should I read next? It’s a question we all ask ourselves time and again. Even with the countless essays, novels, screenplays, poems, and transmedia pieces to discover, to fall in love with or to detest, it can be a challenge to choose. Enter Expo Recommends, a curated selection of readings brought to you by the editors of Exposition Review.
This month, we have Expo’s Managing Editor Rebecca Luxton.
