Bridge Eight Issue 4 is a cohesive collection of poetry and fiction that intends to, “breathe life into colorless spaces” – showing moments where the mundane turns to the surreal, the ugliness of existence is seen as suddenly beautiful, the unsurvivable circumstance a moment of transcendence. It features writing that carries urgency of intention and is unapologetic in its desire to get close to an experience as a means of revealing its truth. Release date: May, 2016. Preorders now available.
The print-only third edition of Bridge Eight Literary Magazine, Diversions, is still available.
Our most ambitious publication to date, Issue 3 is filled with carefully selected pieces from writers throughout the country. Inside you’ll find stories that speak to the elemental parts of who we are as humans – grief, joy, love- and poetry that will cause you to think and feel. We hope you will find these to be diversions from your plans and as much of a joy for you as they were for us
