This is a new monthly feature. I intend to list and provide links to monthly issues of online magazine. Most of these issues publish short fiction for free. Please let me know, in the comments section or by email, if there is a magazine you think I should include in the listing. Also, I will update the post throughout the month with new issues that I find on the internet.
For this month:
This month we present literature from the Caribbean. Writers from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Martinique, and Puerto Rico contribute compelling portraits of their countries and societies. From sober reports on natural disasters and political oppression to antic depictions of sexuality run amok, the pieces collected here testify to the range and vitality of this region’s writers
