Expo Recommends: “POP!”

ExpoRecommends_What-should-I-read-next

What should I read next? It’s a question we all ask ourselves time and again. Even with the countless stories, poems, essays, scripts, art, comics, and films 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.

Our 2024 annual issue submission season is in high gear. For Vol. IX, our editors chose the theme “POP!,” seeking that surprise inherent in a “POP!” and the conflict that arises from it, characters and ideas that burst off the page, in language that crackles and snaps.

Heading into our last few weeks of submissions (our deadline is December 31), we want to give you—our readers, writers, submitters, and community—an extra dose of inspiration. So whether you read Expo Recommends for the recommendations or you want to get a leg up on the competition with a behind-the-scenes look into the preferences of our editorial team, we hope you’ll enjoy our “POP!”-inspired Expo Recommends. And when you buy your copies of the books from our Bookshop, Exposition Review gets a cut!

But this time we had a partner: Sofía Aguilar, who brought expertise as ​​an alum of the workshop, Expo contributor, avid submitter, and editor of Mag 20/20, an online magazine dedicated to creatives in their twenties—to which participants were invited to submit as well.
