Subscriber Testimonials Pt. 5.


There are a very decent sized number of people who are subscribing to the print edition of Annalemma. This is working out for us quite well cause it is a deep running desire for this publication to be completely reader funded. This is working our for our subscribers quite well  for a number of reasons: they get a beautiful magazine they’ll keep and read and cherish for the rest of their days, along with a tight feeling of connection to the literary community, the satisfaction of contributing to an independent publication, the list goes on.

But don’t take my word for it, listen to what our subscribers have to say for themselves…

“I wish I knew how Annalemma gets the art and the words to play so nicely together, each enhancing the other without competing or distracting. If I knew, I’d steal the technique for my own mag. As it is, though, Annalemma stands alone. Every issue’s a beauty, to hold and to read.”

– Bryan Furuness, author, The Lost Episodes of Revie Bryson (Black Lawrence Press)

“While I’m a big fan of new reading platforms –I own an iPad– and in many cases prefer it to having the physical book for both practical and environmental reasons, there are those certain cases where only the printed word will suffice. Annalemma is, without a doubt, one of those instances and is the reason I subscribe.”

–  Ryan Holladay, musician, BlueBrain

“Subscribing to Annalemma wasn’t that much of a gamble in my mind. I wanted to support a small publication that appears to value art as much as I do. I have not been disappointed at all. Most of the art and writing contained within each issue reminds me of why I keep trying, why anyone would keep trying, and of those moments when the trying can stop because something truly beautiful has happened. I’m definitely renewing my subscription.”

–  Jaime Santos-Prowse

“What Annalemma does is remind us that an independently curated literary magazine can marry form with function, exceptionalism with elegance. Each issue of Annalemma speaks to me in some intimate way as a reader, shows me what I want to reach for as both an editor and writer, and reminds me that a magazine is at its greatest when it is not afraid to expose the bright red muscle of its big beating heart.”

– Roxane Gay, author, Ayiti (Artistically Declined Press)
