New Journal Publishes Anonymously

The pilot issue of the literary journal The New Anonymous has hit newsstands with one very striking variation from its neighbors: the entire production of the magazine, including the articles printed, is anonymous. The nameless editors screen and edit submissions anonymously, simply, as the publication’s website notes, “celebrating the text.”

Writing for BOMB magazine Brian McMullen calls the journal “an inspiring, new embodiment of democracy at its best.”  He also applauds the “15 good stories and poems,” while questioning if the “nine inexplicable pages of zany fake ads” help the journal. 

You can order a copy of The New Anonymous on their website.
