2019 Year of Authors: 15 – 19 April

It’s not every year you get to celebrate publishing 20 issues of genre-busting literature. We want our readers to reap the rewards, and our contributors to shine in the spotlight, so every week we are offering up a selection of deeply discounted past issues, based on one of the authors, poets, or artists whose work fills the magazine’s pages. Welcome to week 15 of Pulp Literature’s Year of Authors!

15th – 19th April 2019

Monday: Ian Haight, Issue 14

Ian Haight’s collection of poetry, Celadon, won Unicorn Press’s First Book Prize, he is the editor of Zen Questions and Answers from Korea, and with T’ae-yong Hõ, he is the co-translator of Borderland Roads: Selected Poems of Kyun Hð and Magnolia and Lotus: Selected Poems of Hyesim (finalist for ALTA’s Stryk Prize) from White Pine Press. Ian currently lives and works in Germany.

Tuesday: Ingrid Jendrzjewski, Issue 15

Winner of the 2017 Bumblebee Flash Fiction Contest, Ingrid Jendrzejewski grew up in Vincennes, Indiana, and studied creative writing at the University of Evansville, then physics at the University of Cambridge.

Ingrid currently serves as the Editor in Chief of FlashBack Fiction, an editor at Flash Flood, and a flash editor at JMWW, and she has just come on board as one of the co-directors of National Flash Fiction Day (UK).

Wednesday: Jaqui Hartwood, Issue 2

Friday: Jasmin Nyack, Issue 19

Jasmin Nyack refuses to confirm whether or not she has ever been captured by aliens. But something must be the cause of her newfound hobbies of sword fighting, baking, and knitting Weasley-inspired sweaters. Check out her new podcast, Couch Lecture, where Jasmin explores characters and their roles!
