Here on offer are two quite unique Action Photos of David James Keaton’s fine story, now gracing Issue Six. The first is a fairly literal interpretation of the story, taken out back-campus (look at that telephone pole!). The second comes from that chaotic hub of hubs, the single, campus cafeteria, during the heat of lunch hour, probably the most concentrated group of students (and, therefore, readers) to gather in one single place on a given day. (That shocked-looking fellow in the foreground is in my journalism class.)
Shocked & Amazed
I’ll just say again how much inspiration I take from all of your kind words about the Safety Pin Review. It gives me the confidence to ignore certain unfriendly aspects of the college experience and march headfirst into this exciting venture… If I could hug each and every one of you, I would. If we ever meet, I will.
Also… a particularly nice plug from Nat’l Book Award- and PEN/Faulkner-winner Sherman Alexie, a writer I’ve admired since my fiction-writing life began (senior year of high school), who wrote a really awesome post on his website about us. Check it out, read War Dances. Perhaps one day we’ll feature one of his stories…
Hopefully I’ll collect more photos to post throughout the week.
