“We’re looking for work that has an artfulness to it. I understand how, with everything going on in the world today we want to scream sometimes and it comes through our writing. Sometimes that kind of writing can come off as finger-wagging.” —Dorothy Bendel
Hi, luminous writers. This is a replay of a conversation I had with the former Managing Editor at Atticus Review , Dorothy Bendel.
I’m reissuing this interview as a companion to a piece that was just posted on my website, written by Lucy Wilde, a writer in my course and membership community, about publishing with Atticus Review in a series of articles called “How I Published With…”
As Lucy, my student, writes, “There are two main reasons I wanted to see my work in Atticus Review, the quality of the writing and the fact that they are interested in publishing hybrid, unconventional work that pushes boundaries.”
There is a lot to love and lot of helpful instruction about how to write publish and shine in the upcoming conversation with Atticus Reviews former Managing Editor, Dorothy Bendel.
Atticus Review publishes writing that is unashamed, unadorned, and unafraid, and is a daily online journal that publishes fiction, poems, and creative nonfiction, as well as graphic art, mixed media, music essays, and, on occasion, blog posts, and interviews.
