Issue 4 is underway!

We’re excited to announce that all pieces for Issue 4 (due out by Fall 2015) have been selected, and we are beginning the production process! The issue will feature a fantastic variety of voices, both seasoned and novice, from all around the world. This promises to be an amazing issue, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

At Home in Paris

The folks at Shakespeare & Company were nice enough to send us a picture of KTA – Issue 2 at home on their shelves. We’ve always associated that legendary bookstore with magic of all kinds, so of course it follows that KTA is displayed next to The Caterpillar, a fabulous literary magazine for children. We had the good fortune of meeting the editors of The Caterpillar last year at the GIANT Lit Mag fair at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. Literary fate? We think so!

Sneak Peek for Issue 2

Sneak peek for issue two, which will be available Summer 2013!

We are so honored and proud that Issue 2 of Killing the Angel will feature a poem by England’s distinguished and prolific (not to mention incredibly witty and friendly) poet, Neil Curry. From his website: The poet Neil Curry was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, and now lives in Ulverston in the English Lake District. He read English at Bristol University, then taught at the University of Guelph in Canada and subsequently at secondary schools in England. His verse translations of Euripides, published by Methuen and Cambridge University Press, and in the USA by Doubleday, have been performed in many countries. His poems have appeared in many pamphlets and magazines, and have won several national prizes.

On that note, submissions for Issue 2 are officially open from now through February 1, 2013! Click here for information.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our NYC launch party on December 18, 2012, 7-9 PM at the KGB Bar in Manhattan! It’s going to be a great night.
