Welcome to Redux, the online literary journal devoted to finding lost gems of print age contemporary literature and bringing them to the internet. “There are no second acts in American lives,” F. Scott Fitzgerald famously said, but that was before the internet came along. Surely in the vast expanse of whatever-it-is (a cloud?) that is the internet, Redux can claim a tiny corner to feature previously published literary work, stories and poems that are too fabulous to be locked away in the dungeon of page 64 in a lovely—but now forgotten—issue of a literary journal tucked away in the dark stacks of a university library.
Each week, we’ll feature one story or a selection of poems or an essay that has been previously published in print only, work that is not contained in a book or anthology. The author will offer a few thoughts about why he/she has selected this work to share with the world. And you, dear reader, are asked only to enjoy.
You may sign up for a free subscription above, in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Be assured that your name and email address will not be used for anything other than notification that Redux has been updated. We’ll be up and running with a great story next week, and as we work through our growing pains, we’ll be posting something every other week, with an eye to moving the journal to weekly publications soon.
You can learn more about the Editorial Board here.
If you’re a writer who would like us to consider your work for inclusion on Redux, please carefully consult the submission guidelines found here. We will be open for submissions in the near future.
Thank you, and we’re looking forward to doing our small part to help great work reach new readers!
