This is the first issue of a new magazine for writers and readers alike. I feel I should say something meaningful and metaphorical about birth and the advent of a new venture, but instead, I’ll simply tell you what to expect from our maiden voyage.
We kick off this issue and each issue that follows with an interview. It will always be someone who is innovative in the art of words. There is also an accompanying video of our guest with this month’s issue featuring the supremely talented Newfoundland story teller and folklorist, Dale Jarvis.
The rest of Tuck Magazine will contain a variety of genres and methods of story telling so that there is something for every reader’s particular taste. They are as follows:
Flash fiction that is full of gumption and quirk tinged with wit and a bit of silliness too. But don’t be fooled, these flash stories also contain some social commentary that is wise and astute.
Poetry from the soul and from different parts of our world: Australia, Canada, South Africa, France and the United States of America. Each poet has a perspective that is unique and moving, probing the depths of both intellect and spirit.
Short stories that provoke and engage your imagination, part fable, part myth and completely engrossing. I lost myself in both while reading and this is ultimately what a good story is: a thrilling escape.
Photography that is eclectic and spiritual. So many aspects of the human condition are represented in non human form as seen and captured by photographer Adrian LaRoque in this issue. Stunning and diverse, each photograph captures a meaning for everyone who views them.
I think we are going to have a thrilling voyage together, so sit back and lose yourself in the words and images of some very gifted artists.
