Featuring Jai Chakrabarti, Peter Gizzi, Carole Maso, and Shane McCrae, introduced by Colin ChannerJoin us to celebrate the launch of Conjunctions:79, Onword! The evening will feature readings by contributors Jai Chakrabarti, Peter Gizzi, Carole Maso, and Shane McCrae, introduced by Colin Channer.
The literary journal Conjunctions, edited by novelist Bradford Morrow and published by Bard College, has been a living notebook for provocative, risk-taking, rigorously composed fiction, poetry, and narrative nonfiction since 1981. As PEN America has it: “Conjunctions is one of our most distinctive and valuable literary magazines: innovative, daring, indispensable, and beautiful.”
Our Fall 2022 issue is a celebration of continuing both onward and Onword—on with Conjunctions, on with the words.
While this issue has no theme, what we’ve collected here could simply be described as “great writing by great writers.” And themes do, of course, emerge: Inside, you’ll find explorations of survival, migration, loss and renewal, as well as meditations on how to live with disappointment, how to reimagine and rebuild, and how to move onward through difficult existential terrains.
Conjunctions 79, Onword features new work from Fred Moten, Can Xue, John Crowley, Nathaniel Mackey, Sofia Samatar, Yxta Maya Murray, Russell Banks, Deb Olin Unferth, Rae Armantrout, G. C. Waldrep, Bonnie Nadzam, Vi Khi Nao, Carole Maso, Julia Alvarez, Fred D’Aguiar, and more, as well as three previously unpublished poems by C. D. Wright.
