Publisher’s description: Fjords Review is an arts and literary review for the 21st century reader. The twice yearly magazine features gallery curated visual art, poetry, short stories and other literature alongside translations, interviews and book and art reviews.
We feature work that shows a singular and definitive voice, mastery of an idea or subject matter with clear and concise language and originality. We consider all types of work—translations, experimental work, genre bending interstitial cross-disciplinary work, formal work, and more.
Fjords’ staff was picked for multitudinous literary orientations and backgrounds. Query us for potential single artist opening night and book reviews. Select authors are picked from each issue to record their poems, which we feature on our website along with other dynamic art and literary content.
This issue (Volume 2 Issue 2) features “I Wish to be Set Free” by Yumi Sakugawa, “Guðrið Helmsdal & Tóroddur Poulsen” translated by Randi Ward, “Big Books and Little Guitars” by Sean Carswell, and an interview with Jacob M. Appel.
Volume 2 Issue 1: Billy Collins interviewed, the unconventional artwork of W. Craghead III and art on race by Victor Ekpuk. Kimberly Hawlena’s unique recipe “Hunger & Satisfaction” stands out in our creative non-fiction section. Russian poet Mikhail Yeryomin translated by J. Kates and an essay on Appolinaire’s one line poem by Frederick Smock round out the issue’s superb creative non-fiction, poetry and short stories including critic Erik Martiny’s first creative work “Sartorius.”
