InDigest Issue 2

So if you read this blog you may already know, but InDigest has released Issue 2. It's just gone up, and we think it's looking pretty good. There is a bit of a new look to the front page and we've got our newsletter going. Issue 2 includes an interview with Roger Deakins (shameless self plug), poetry by Ada Limon, Erica Wright, Tiffany Noelle Fung, a new Bedside Stacks, new Dorkolopogous, art from Debra Ripp and Tove Floren, and much more (notice the serial comma Dave, I'm sold).

We've also added a InDigsest news section at the bottom of the main page, so look at that and see what's happening with artists who've been published in InDigest, and what's new with InDigest itself.

At Last Unfolding Congo

So I'm a huge geek, if you read the InDigest Blog at all you know I already posted pretty much this same entry. But I was just paging Mosquito again and thought I should throw something up on my own blog.


Alex Lemon has a new chapbook out called At Last Unfolding Congo. I can't vouch for it yet, officially, (because I only ordered my copy yesterday) but he's a great poet and if you have any interest in poetry you should get this. It's out through Horseless Press it's really pretty cheap, and why not, you haven't bought a book of poetry you've fallen in love with since that last collection of Neruda, well I haven't anyway, so why not try this? what? Go and at least read the posted poem about At Last Unfolding's that a great title anyhow?

InDigest what

Months of non-stop work have finally paid off and InDigest is a real magazine now. if you haven't been to the site yet you should check it out, Issue one came out on Monday. It's kind of amazing to hear all of the great feedback we've been getting and see that people are actually reading our magazine (or ezine, I guess). It's an interesting experience. I'm pretty proud of the magazine so far, and think that our editing team is pretty amazing, everyone worked really hard over the last couple of months to get it out.

Special thanks needs to be appointed to a couple people who've been really helpful along the way, Alex Lemon ( is great and you should read his new book of poetry, Mosquito, Ashleigh Lambert, Dan Wieken, and many others have helped out a ton, have things in the first issue and are generally good people. So if you get a chance check out the site, let us know what you think, good, bad or otherwise and check back, the next issue is out in a little over a week. And if you live in the Twin Cities you should come to our release party in the Clown Lounge of the turf Club on Sunday (Dec. 9th).
