I guest edited/curated this month’s issue of ƒault.
ƒault is pretty much exactly what I want from an online journal, which is content and presentation that could only exist online.
I kept this in mind when coming up with the concept for my issue: Scroll.
I wanted writing that wouldn’t fit on a physical page.
We scroll everyday on the internet. I want to make readers consider that and writers consider how they could work with that and make that work for them.
I think I achieved this.
I didn’t receive many submissions (this makes sense, it was a hard brief to write for and the contributors had less than a month to get something together).
Out of the 16 submissions I received, I ended up publishing 9 pieces, only one of which was solicited.
The final lineup includes work by Bob Schofield, Jay Snodgrass, Shaun Gannon, DJ Berndt, Penny Goring, Daniel Golding, Max Trevor Thomas Edmond, Patrick Steadman, Evan Hatch, Shane Jesse Christmas, Dan Hogan, and Benjamin King.
Thank you to everyone who submitted.
There is a lot of raw energy in this issue and I hope it gets some people excited.
LEFT will be more refined and polished than Scroll but I think Scroll should give people a good idea of the type of energy and creativity I’m looking for with LEFT.
Another place where people can see an example of my publishing sensibility is UP, which I edit with Carolyn DeCarlo.
Huge thanks to Caden Lovelace, for letting me be a part of ƒault.
