Best use of appropriation in popular art:
Also, 5 trope is not dead!. Some background, 5 trope is probably one of my all-time top 5 favorite literary journals and I thought they’d stopped publishing because they had not posted new material in over a year.
It seems they just changed web addresses and did not link the old address to the new. So this means they are probably not super tech-savvy. Thankfully, they are amazingly language savvy. For example, look at the story ‘Small Finger of Potent Magnetism’ by Caren Beilen. Sick. These are texts in the fullest and most laudatory sense of the word.
Finally, I want to note that voting is open for the StorySouth Million Writers Award. I would like to encourage you to go and vote for the story ‘Fuckbuddy’ written by Roderic Crooks and published by the always rad Eyeshot. There are other good stories nominated too. One from AGNI is included, and since Sean used to do some editing for them, I have a guess as to who he’s backing.
Anyways, check out the nomineesHERE and then vote.
