Welcome to Issue No. 19 of Prime Number:
A Journal of Distinctive Poetry & Prose
We’ve got a great issue for you—Number 19 is our EIGHTH—but first I wanted to share some news! Our nonfiction editor, Tracy Crow, has just published her memoir, Eyes Right: Confessions from a Woman Marine, with the University of Nebraska Press. It’s a great read, and I think you should all find a copy right now. Or right after you read this issue of Prime Number Magazine.
In Number 19, we continue to bring you distinctive poetry and prose: short stories by Laretta Andrews-Mitchell, Frank Scozzari, Gerry Wilson, and Arthur Powers; essays by Eileeen M. Cunniffe, Michael Royce, Michael Brantley, and Susan Grier; a craft essay by Maria Giura; poetry by Richard Downing and Mary McMyne; reviews of novels by and interviews with Kirby Gann and Marc Schuster, and a review of a poetry collection by Kevin Simmonds.
Our cover photo for the issue is by photographer Cath Barton, who also provided the cover for Issue 11.
We are currently reading submissions for the Issue 19 updates, Issue 23, and beyond. Please visit our Submit page and send us your distinctive poetry and prose. We’re looking for stories and essays up to 4,000 words (including flash under 1,000 words), poems, book reviews, craft essays, short drama, ideas for interviews, and cover art that reflects the number of a particular issue (we’re looking for a “23” right now). If we’ve had to decline your submission, please forgive us and try again! A number of readers have asked how they might comment on the work they read in the magazine. We’ll look into adding that feature in the future. In the meantime if you are moved to comment I would encourage you to send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll pass your thoughts along to the contributors. Similarly, if you are a publisher and would like to send us ARCs for us to consider for reviews, please contact us at the above email address. We’re especially interested in reviewing new, recent, or overlooked books from small presses. One more thing: Prime Number Magazine is published by Press 53, a terrific small press helping to keep literature alive. Please support independent presses and bookstores.
