Dear Reader Magazine
Dear Reader Magazine is coming!


We are delighted to announce a new bi-monthly literary magazine (Dear Reader Mag) that will feature some of the best writing from New Zealand, Australia and the world.

It's an online magazine that delights in and encourages good writing, provoking essays, moving prose and poetry, as well as featuring news, reviews and feature interviews with some of the best writers and forward thinkers of our time.

The first issue will be available mid-July and features interviews with Andrew Solomon, Jesse Ball, Karen Joy Fowler and Craig Sherborne. It also features poetry from LA poet Rich Ferguson and Uche Ogbuji. There are essays on the Trump/Russia scandal from author Greg Olear; The idea of creating 'shero's' in The Handmaids Tale; and a story about raising Jim Morrison from the dead by Duke Haney. 

We are accepting submissions for the next issue now - we would love to hear from you.
