egress #1 out now

A year in the making, issue #1 of Egress is out now in the UK (late June in the US) from Little Island Press. Our first issue includes fiction and essays by Diane Williams, Kathryn Scanlan, Eley Williams, Christine Schutt, Gordon Lish, David Hayden, Laura Ellen Joyce, Greg Mulcahy, Kimberly King Parsons, Brian Evenson, Sam Lipsyte, Evan Lavender-Smith, Carrie Cooperider, Ashton Politanoff, Grant Maierhofer, Lily Hackett, Hob Broun and Veronica Scott Esposito. To mark the occasion, Andrew Latimer and I spoke to Biblioklept about avant-garde magazines, ‘gorgeous and ugly’ sentences, and literary communities. We’ve also published two pieces from the issue (a new story by Diane Williams, and part of our feature on Hob Broun) online.
