N1_14If you’re interested in quality online reading, here’s a great site to check out: Narrative Magazine.  It features fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and audio files of authors reading their work.  Currently, the following writers’ works are featured: Jhumpa Lahiri, Richard Bausch, Stuart Dybek, Aimee Nezhukumatahil, Robert Olen Butler, and Charles D’Ambrosio, among others.  In order to access the site’s material, registration is required; however, it’s free to sign up.

From the Mission Statement:

NARRATIVE is the leading online publisher of first-rank fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. A nonprofit organization, NARRATIVE is dedicated to advancing the literary arts in the digital age by supporting the finest writing talent and encouraging readership around the world and across generations. Our online library of new literature by celebrated authors and by the best new and emerging writers is available for free.

The second issue of Wag’s Revue–a free, online-only literary magazine–is now available for your reading pleasure at  This issue features the following:

According to its manifesto, the quarterly’s editors are “intent on revolutionizing online literature. We wish to create something entirely of the internet, never printed and never meant to be printed, but with all the editorial and aesthetic controls that entice people to read and trust the finest printed media.”

I highly recommend this to everyone.  The quality of writing, the artwork and photography, the interviews, the ease of navigating through the site–all of these aspects will make a visit over there worth your time.  Check it out, bookmark it, and revisit the site when Issue 3 is released in September.  Again, it’s free!

Also note:  Wag’s Revue accepts unsolicited manuscripts.  If you’re interested in sending them your work, make sure to read the submission guidelines page for all of the details.
