An Exciting New Prospect--A New Literary Magazine


Many of you may already have received this announcement, but it is of such interest that I thought I'd share it here. My normal policy is not to share what arrives in e-mail, but there is an implicit permission in the body of the text itself, and it is perhaps best to allow the editor to speak for himself.

I am writing to inform you of a new initiative that I hope you will find very exciting and interesting. Throughout the past few months, a group of young Catholics (including myself) have been working to create a Catholic literary magazine targeted to students and young scholars. The name of the magazine is Dappled Things, and its aim is to provide a space for young writers to engage the literary world rom a Catholic perspective. There are SO many talented young Catholics out there, that we decided it was imperative to bring Dappled Things into existence as an outlet for this talent and as a means of nurturing more of it. The magazine is committed to quality writing yhat takes advantage of the religious, theological, philosophical, artistic, cultural, and literary heritage of the Catholic Church in order to inform and enrich contemporary literary culture. Thus, we are committed to following JPII's call to evangelize the arts and culture.

After much "behind the scenes" work, we are beginning our awareness campaign in order to spark interest in the magazine throughout the country. We seek to publish our inaugural online issue this advent, for which we are currently accepting submissions. We expect to release a print edition before the end of 2006. . . .If you are interested in our work, you could be a great help to our awareness campaign by informing your readers about the magazine, and providing a link to our website

where they will be able to find more information about our publication and how they may be able to make a submission. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

In a post script the writer points out that they had arrived at the name of the magazine itself before they were fully aware of blogdom and the coincidence of names is precisely that, a coincidence.
