Publisher’s description: For the past 10 years, Epiphany, a Literary Journal has been publishing emerging and established voices in the genres of Poetry, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Translation. The strength of our writing and editing has been validated by inclusion in multiple anthologies including The Pushcart Prize, Best American Essays, and Best New Poets, among others.
Though in each issue we publish many established writers, such as Derek Walcott, Edward Hirsch, Roxanna Robinson, Rachel Zucker, and many more, it is of our previously unpublished writers that we are most proud. Consider the following quote by Domingo Martinez, a previously unpublished writer whose career we helped launch:
“The editorial board at Epiphany take their mission statement to heart, and they are as good as its word. They understood what I was attempting from the start, valued both form and content equally with story when they first found my unsolicited offering in their mail. Personally, I can chart my progress in publishing back to the first response I received from Willard Cook, and since then, I’ve treasured the support, advocacy and encouragement Epiphany has given me since. Epiphany has exactly the sort of community a writer hopes he or she finds, in among the bramble.”
