Publisher's Description: Ragazine.CC is an independent e-zine founded in 2004 by Michael Foldes. Published six times a year, Ragazine offers a challenging mix of art, photography, fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, satire, political and social commentary, and humor that mirrors life in the world today. We treasure diversity and honor craftsmanship, and look for it in all the work we publish, no matter the medium.
Ragazine’s contributors include Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize recipients and National Book Award nominees, as well as college students and senior citizens who “work-shopped” their first published poems into our pages. Ragazine’s editors and contributors have interviewed top thinkers in the fields of economic and social theory, participated in G20 and Rhodes Forum sessions, reported on advances in medical and “green” technologies, climbed mountains, ridden cross-country on bicycles, and described the open air laundries of India in words and photos.
Ragazine actively supports the We Are You Project, a traveling exhibition and documentary film representing the first comprehensive, coast-to-coast artistic overview of the current state of Latino socio-cultural, political, and economic conditions in 21st Century America. This collaboration provides an outlet for Latino artists and writers, as well as a window into contemporary Latino culture.
In the January/February 2014 issue: winning entry for the Speculative Fiction Contest, “The Chance”; “On the Run” and “Post Script,” nonfiction pieces; fiction piece “With No Affixes”; an artist interview with pop art icon Mel Ramos; 3 Greek poets, in Greek and in translation; on location features from India, Austin Texas, Kyrgyzstan, and Pakistan; “Why Can’t This Retired Marine Find a Job?”; and much, much more.
November-December 2013: Poets Nicole Broadhurst and Teresa Sutton bear witness to events very often beyond their control; Alex Straaik blends fact and fiction reflecting on the whereabouts of a long-lost friend; and Michel Collins takes us to a western desert where a team of young anthropologists discovers how wide the divide between digital and analog. John Smelcer offers up two pieces, one a poem written years ago with Ted Hughes over a couple of drinks in an English pub, illustrated for this occasion by Micah Clarke, and a memoir recounting how his acquaintance with the famed Irish poet Seamus Heaney got off to a shaky start.
September-October 2013: Featuring poets Christopher Phelps, Dante Di Stefano, Edie Angelo and Oliver Rice, and in translation by Flavia Cosma, Luis Raul Calvo; steadfast columnists Mark Levy (Casual Observer), Jim Palombo (politics), Galanty Miller (Re-Tweets) and Bill Dixon (From the Edge); music reviewers Jeff Katz (music editor) and Fred Roberts V9N5 COVER 2(contributing editor, music); and, creative nonfiction writers Jaron Serven and Cris Mazza.
