publications│WATERSHED Review Literary Magazine Fall 2016 (post II)



publications│WATERSHED Review Literary Magazine Fall 2016



I am pleased to announce that my photo essay "And They Say Of Her Woman" was accepted and published in the Fall 2016 Issue of "WATERSHED REVIEW" -literary magazine released in December 2016. 


About WATERSHED REVIEW

Watershed Review, one of the oldest, continuously published, student-edited literary magazines in the nation, is sponsored by the English Department at California State University, Chico.

For thirty-five years, Watershed Review has been the foundation of California State University, Chico’s literary editing and publishing program, providing professional training to countless creative writers and editors.

We are thrilled to bring Watershed Review into its next iteration, utilizing an online platform to offer more selections of poetry, prose and visual art.

We seek to publish imaginative works that push past the expected metaphor, that challenge us to engage and question accepted structure, that augment time-honored forms of writing and consider what comes next.


HISTORY of the MAGAZINE

A magazine does have this “life” to it (proper to it), does have streets, can show lights, movie houses, bars….

Charles Olson



A magazine, then, is a place, has a geography, and a history, a demographic, a shape. The geography, demographic, and shape of Watershed are changing radically with this first on-line issue, but its history stays the same. The history of a magazine is part of its identity (proper to its identity) as is the history of any place.

It began humbly and somewhat unexpectedly as a 1-unit project in the first class in Literary Editing and Publishing in the English Department at California State University, Chico, spring 1977. I had been working, in addition to my teaching, as an editor at Dustbooks, a small press in Paradise, California, and although the Small Press (independent, mostly literary small publishers) was at the time at best scorned as ephemera, and at worse confused with vanity publishing, my experience there qualified me to create and teach a course, suddenly demanded by higher-ups, in editing and publishing. It was probably intended to be “scholarly” editing, the study of, for example, Ezra Pound’s extensive editing of T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland.” But my experience had taught me the excitement and pleasure of editing as a practice, the ongoing activities by which a manuscript is selected, edited, and turned into a book or magazine. I insisted the class have a 1-unit practicum. Most students accepted internships with various newsletters and small printer/publishers, but two held out for creating one issue of a literary magazine, a possibility I had announced without really believing in it.

Hi! I am Cassius, a three-month old baby boy, and I have just found home.

I loved all of them! While walking through a long corridor I felt like caressing them, asking how they were doing there, if they needed anything. I think my crazy heart was telling me to take them all home.

publications│PALAVER Literary Magazine Fall 2016 Issue

About Palaver
Traditional sources offer many definitions for the word palaver. These show a turbulent history in the word’s vernacular—from tribal “palaver huts” where Portuguese traders negotiated with African tribesmen in a dialogue between native and invader, to the colloquial hijack: a “fuss or commotion”—palaver comes to us with some proverbial baggage.
