Independent Journal Publishes War-themed 'Epiphany'

Founded in 2003, the independent literary magazine Epiphany recently published its twelfth issue. The Winter/Spring 2013 issue was guest-edited by U.S. Army veteran and contemporary war poet Brian Turner, and the entire issue focuses on a theme of war.

"Literary magazines are among the best choice for giving us access to a personal truth," reads the publication's Facebook page, "in a media-saturated age of blasé impatience, they are still the best equipped of any format to tell the truth slant."

Epiphany is published twice yearly, in spring and fall. The non-profit publication's mission statement reads:
Epiphany publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and visual media from both established and emerging writers and artists. We believe that artists and writers reflect the society in which they live and publishing crisp and imaginative writing is of utmost value to any society. Poetry as well as narrative helps people to reflect and understand themselves. 
To ensure success it is critical to support continuous practice, collaboration and careful editing of the written form. Epiphany supports and honors the determination of writers and artists by publishing and marketing their work.
The 200-page war issue is available via subscription ($20 annually; 25 percent off until March 31); direct sales at Barnes and Noble stores; and via the publication's website.

Epiphany is currently seeking submissions for the Spring/Summer 2013 issue. For more information, click here. Details include:
  • Submit one story or essay at a time.
  • Submit no more than five poems at a time.
  • Submit no more than two times per year.

Thanks to the staff of the War, Literature & the Arts journal for the tip!
