I contributed a half-baked section of fiction to Bronx Biannual. It would in time become my first screenplay. My apologies to everyone who felt they had to suffer through my growing pains.
Anyway, I’m always interested in the black lit journals. More or less. Always, that is.
The New Inquiry’s Malcolm Harris and The Los Angeles Review of Books’s Evan Kindley talked on Twitter with Spook Magazine’s one-man editorial team Jason Parham about the new publication’s founding, goals, and forthcoming first issue.
Evan Kindley: I’ll start us off. Jason, how long have you been planning Spook? When was it born?
Jason Parham: The idea was born in December. I officially started reaching out to possible contributors in January. There seemed to be a gap, so I thought, foolishly enough, I could fill it. Toni Morrison is famous for saying, “Write the book you want to read.” Spook is born out of that thinking.
