This way, we hope to create new diagonal connections. We believe there cannot be a unified language, therefore every contributor will write, draw, reflect, photograph, compose in his own language. The general concept is defined more precisely in the manifesto. What form ATOPIA will take depends on its users. You can either submit articles or use the discussion forum to react to the contributions.

An opportunity for perspective contributors to let their creative juices take them where they may. The more stodgy zines and literary periodicals may reject pieces based on conservatism, but not so here. "We don't care if Language poetry appears next to sonnets, or haiku next to spoken word and workshop poetry beside agit-smut. Our tastes are catholic—even though we're Jews and pagans and Buddhists and libertines and run-of-the-mill Christians. We don't care how art is shaped—round like moon, flat like roadkill, angular like love, twisted like political promises. We hear many voices (even when we're taking our meds) and are guided by whimsy and passion and urgency. We want more."

Monthly Review In May 1949 Monthly Review began publication in New York City, as cold war hysteria gathered force in the United States. The first issue featured the lead article Why Socialism? by Albert Einstein. From the first Monthly Review spoke for socialism and against U.S. imperialism, and is still doing so today. From the first Monthly Review was independent of any political organization, and is still so today. The McCarthy era inquisition targeted Monthly Review's original editors Paul Sweezy and Leo Huberman, who fought back successfully. In the subsequent global upsurge against capitalism, imperialism and the commodification of life (in shorthand “1968”) Monthly Review played a global role. A generation of activists received no small part of their education as subscribers to the magazine and readers of Monthly Review Press books. In the intervening years of counter-revolution, Monthly Review has kept a steady viewpoint. That point of view is the heartfelt attempt to frame the issues of the day with one set of interests foremost in mind: those of the great majority of humankind, the propertyless.

I am thankful to the Pedagogical Institute, especially to Maria Cristina Petruzzino, for having offered me this possibility, and to Vanni, the webmaster, for his fast but intuitive lessons. I acknowledge all those who have chosen to send their poetic compositions, and feel as if it was my personal privilege to have met them, even if often only in cyber-land, which allows Pindaric flights, inputs, expectations, deceptions; but most of all I agree with Pierre Lévy in his positive outlook on this infinite space which has brought to a higher level of common intellectuality thanks to its limitless access. Jorge Luis Borges’ dream, the librarian in/of time, is almost real." -- Anny Ballardini

Vestal Review is a free quarterly e-zine devoted to what we consider an underrepresented type of fiction: flash (or short-short) stories. A good flash, replete with a cohesive plot, rich language and enticing imagery, is perhaps the hardest type of fiction to write. A good flash is so condensed that it borderlines poetry. A good flash engages your mind not only for the short duration of its read, but for a long time after. Vestal Review is an eclectic magazine, open to all genres except children's stories and hard science fiction. It includes six to eight flash stories per issue.
Zacatecas: A Review of Contemporary Word (formerly Thieves' Press) was founded with the purpose of broadening the cultural perspective of contemporary English fiction.
