If you’re looking for what’s new on the market, be sure to visit the Picolata Review, a new online literary journal whose debut issue hit the net on yesterday’s solstice, June 21, 2006.
Featuring poets and writers from various genres and backgrounds as well as interviews and book reviews, the Picolata Review has done an excellent job of creating a fresh, new voice for itself in the chorus of literary publications.
Each piece is both unique and well-composed, and while it’s hard to pick a favorite, I’ll direct you to two of the pieces which spoke to me the most: I am Chinese, by Jamie Ford, and Prelude to Redemption, by Santiago B. Villafania. Be sure to browse the rest of the issue – every piece is worth the read!
The Picolata Review includes a little information about each author and their work. Readers also have the opportunity to discuss the works published in the Picolata Review in their online forum, created as a place for readers and writers to exchange ideas.
