Quail Bell Magazine print issue no. 5 is in! Order now for quails in your mails!

You can order this issue and even buy a subscription here. Also, Quail Bell Magazine will be at the Brooklyn Zine Fest on April 26 & 27 and you can pick out your quail personally. Either way, it’s a beautiful issue full of artwork, essays, articles, fiction, poetry, and more by fresh, talented artists and writers. My essay, “Blond Gypsy Angels: Romani Looks, Romani Blood, Romani Challenges,” about the Maria case and the “Gypsy child-thieves” hysteria that swept through Europe, is in there too.

I love ezines, especially artsy indie ezines, but I extra-love print magazines, so I get especially excited when Quail Bell releases print issues. The majority of Quail Bell’s content is online, and the print issues reflect the season’s highlights plus some extras. I hope y’all enjoy it!

They're here! Such perfect quails.

Quail news: new poem, staff writer, Twitter presence, and a call for book reviews!

1. I wrote this creepy poem just for you! “Window” just came out in Quail Bell Magazine.

2. Speaking of which, Quail Bell just came out with two anthologies packed with poems, fairy tales, short stories, artwork, comics, essays, and articles. If you’re interested in reviewing Airborne: an Anthology of the Real and/or The Nest: an Anthology of the Unreal, for any journal, magazine, ezine, etc. that you’re affiliated with, let me know and I’ll hit you up with the galleys.
