Back in April I was tugged into the world of Kickstarter by Birkensnake, one of my favourite literary magazines. Based in the States, they produce gorgeous magazines, and always have the content to match. Their Kickstarter project was to fund the sixth annual issue, to be produced in seven separate editions by seven separate editorial and art teams. It sounded too good to miss.
My copy arrived last week. Edited by Benny Lichtner and Elan Lafontaine and produced by Nicole Trigg and Michele Chun, it’s a thing of beauty, and is—predictably—full of great stories and poetry in that special, slightly off-kilter, Birkensnake way. You can read the issue/issues in-full and buy a copy/copies over at their website. There are more photos of this edition below the break.
