September 14, 2019 -- The Santa Monica Review will host a launch party this month for what its editor describes as an "especially rich, powerful" issue that features "a surprising if welcome number of love stories."
The fall 2019 issue of the bi-annual literay magazine published by Santa Monica College (SMC) also features political irony and humor, as well as meditations on art and family, said the Review's editor Andrew Tonkovich.Four recent contributors to the magazine will read from their work at the launch party Sunday, October 27, at 5 p.m. in The Edye at the SMC Performing Arts Center, event organizers said.
“It's genre-boundless, always smart, and gorgeous writing, whether in long, poetic lines or economical and vividly urgent plot-smart and purposefully contrived shorter stories.
"After two decades of considering manuscripts for publication," Tonkovich said, "I'm especially impressed with how easy it is to identify the obvious stand-outs, the must-read and must-publish work."
The new issue includes pieces by Denise Heyt McEvoy; UC Irvine MFA Ross Green; PhD candidate Daniel Uncapher; Michael Cadnum, author of "Earthquake Murder," and veteran TV writer and playwright Andrew Nicholls.
Other writers included in the issue are Gregory Spatz, author of "Half as Happy;" short story writer George McCormick, author of the acclaimed collection "Salton Sea;" Laura Glen Louis, author of "Talking in the Dark," and poet, naturalist and fiction innovator Charles Hood.
Cover art for the fall 2019 edition is by Puerto Rican graphic artist and filmmaker Poli Marichal.
