Complacency Will Never Be An Option Again

A bonafide fascist is the president-elect and there are very real consequences looming. The Supreme Court could be altered for a generation. A global war that threatens civilization and demands a careful touch rages daily.

Monday Missive: Note from the EIC

It’s my intent, for better or worse, to jot out a missive each Monday with a purpose that is two-fold. 1) To let you know what’s coming up for the week at Atticus Review and 2) To occasionally express a little of what’s on my mind in terms of literature, the media, words, art, music. I will aim to keep these to about 800 words, which I believe is a number of words that holds special magical powers when it comes to electronic missives, children’s books, or recipes for guacamole.

First off, I’m happy to be at Atticus Review and I want to thank Dan Cafaro for bringing me on board. There is so much talent published on this site and there is such great talent bringing that talent to this site and I feel very lucky to be within such short sight of those great talents. I look forward to carrying on with more of the same, in addition to more of the non-same or new, including a (new!) weekly publishing schedule, several (new!) social media accounts, and a (new!) reading series which will at first be local to Northern New Jersey, but which could expand to other (new!) areas (some of which don’t even necessarily have to have “new” in the name.)
