Folios

Folios are our symposiums dedicated to identifying and unpacking important dimensions of the culture at large. "Pandemic Files," curated and published during the very early days of the pandemic, aimed to capture life in the age of the novel coronavirus. It features essays, poems, fiction, and dispatches from writers around the world and from their disparate realms of experience. In our Winter 2019 issue, we published “A New Direction in American Poetry?” which examines the rise of an exciting, startlingly experimental prosaic poetry.
