Featuring the work of FENCE 37/38 contributors. In this episode, we begin with the poet Delicia Daniels, reading with the eerie lulling sound of the sea from poems based on chilling research into antebellum law archives. Next up is Jordan E. Franklin, reading the exuberant poem, "Sometime in January (after David Bowie)." Josh May reads a poem. Josh is followed by Kyle Booten reading his poems "Window Scene Beginning with Lines Written by a Stranger," "Autocomplete Poem," and "Rx #854243." Then we slide into a song, "Autumn Knows Icicles," performed by Dave JaVu, whose array of many songs are all available on Soundcloud. Poems by Austin S. Lin follow the music, including "One Last Biology to Unravel (Mariana Trench, 7 mile mark)," A bridge in America shouldn’t just fall down," and "Scotland Kept Trying to Sell Us American Garlic Bread." Christopher Randall reads his poem “What is normal now.” The story in this episode is "The Emmigrant" by Scott Lambridis. And then we close with another song by Dave JaVu, called "To infinity." Opening and Closing noise by Jason Zuzga.
A HISTORY OF FENCE: Including Essays by FENCE Editors and Selected Articles and Interviews
With most of the entirety of the published journal's contents read aloud by the authors, the FENCE audiobook/podcast continues to push boundaries in literary publishing. In continuous publication since 1998, Fence is a biannual print journal of poetry, fiction, art, and criticism that redefines the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. FENCE is committed to publishing from the outside and the inside of established communities of writing, seeking always to interrogate, collaborate with, and bedevil all the systems that bring new writing to light. As a non-profit, FENCE is mandated to make decisions outside of the requirements of market force or capital concern, and only in keeping with its mission: to maintain a dedicated venue for writing and art that bears the clear variant mark of the individual’s response to their context; and to make that venue accessible to as many, and as widely, as possible so that this work can reach others, that they may be fully aware of how much is possible in writing and art; such that Fence publishes almost entirely from its unsolicited submissions; and is committed to publishing the literature and art of queer writers and writers of color.
Rebecca Wolff is the founder and editor-in-chief of FENCE magazine.
