Issue Four

Dear readers,

It’s been an unseasonably warm winter here in New York City. We haven’t seen much snow this winter, so (as always) we’ve been reflecting heavily on climate change.

In this, our fourth issue, poet Cody-Rose Clevidence writes, “[[for th days of night are also days of reckoning.” We reckon with the function of art as Australia burns, the apparent futility of language as global mean temperatures reveal 2019 to have been the second hottest year on record. The days of night are upon us; we ask you to sit and reckon with us.

This issue is one of our finest and most urgent yet. We are amazed and thankful, always, to have the opportunity to send such incredible work into the world, to find readers who will hold space for this process of reckoning. Please give it a read here (http://www.bomb-cyclone.com/issue-four/) and drop us a line at bombcycloneliterary at gmail dot com with your thoughts.

Stay tuned for more news from Bomb Cyclone, including upcoming literary events, special calls for submissions, and more!

With love and solidarity,

B.C.

2nd Anniversary, Issue Three, and Winter Submissions

Dear readers,

Did you know Bomb Cyclone is approaching our two-year anniversary? Founded in the middle of such a winter storm, we too have spun rapidly into being. Over the past two years, our collaborative editorial team has grown and we’ve striven to provide a platform for imaginative and speculative responses to our current global ecological crisis.

Reflecting on these two years, we’re proud of all the works we’ve exhibited and proud to re-devote ourselves in solidarity and struggle; however, as those conditions that brought us together as editors grow increasingly dire, this anniversary is bittersweet. In this light, we continue to imagine ways we can expand our mission and our impact. Stay tuned in the New Year for announcements of upcoming readings, print initiatives, and more!

In the meantime, we hope you’ll read Issue Threewhich debuted this past summerand submit to our upcoming winter issue! We’re considering submissions in all genres until December 15.

As we approach this anniversary, we’d especially like to hear your thoughts! If you have any ideas on ways to expand Bomb Cyclone‘s impact in the upcoming year, please send us a note at bombcycloneliterary at gmail dot com. We’d love to hear from you!

With love and solidarity,

B.C.
