Sarah’s comments: For anyone interested in writing and/or sharing their international or local experiences, here is a new library-supported literary magazine. Yes, I admit, I am an editor!
The Manatee County Library has just published the second edition of its new online literary and arts journal called 805 Lit + Art Journal. This second edition features stunning art and photography, poetry and thought-provoking stories that traverse the terrain of inner struggle in poignant and sometimes humorous ways.
805 was founded this year by the Manatee County Public Library System. The new journal is run by library staff and volunteers all with their own unique experience as writers and artists.
805 aims to showcase emerging authors and artists both locally and internationally. The editors are looking for fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, and all forms of art.
To read the second edition and for information about submissions and subscriptions, readers can go to www.805lit.org.
