We're overjoyed to share our very first issue of SWING with the Porch community -- and the world! Featuring work from 40 incredible writers.
Available for pre-order; shipping in mid-fall.
Like the thriving organization it’s rooted in, SWING has regional identity and national sway. The Porch in Nashville is a gathering place for writers all over the country to read together, write together, share resources, find help, and revel in the joy of the made thing. The Porch provides an ecosystem for writers at any stage in their practice; publication is a natural progression. If you are a Porch poet, story-writer, essayist, or graphic storyteller (student or teacher) SWING wants to hear from you. If you are from a marginalized or underrepresented community, we want to hear your voice. We are committed to being responsive to issues of equity and inclusion on all fronts.
You can learn more about SWING here. Submissions now open for our next issue! And join us for our official SWING launch party October 19 at Analog at the Hutton Hotel! Featuring readings readers from local contributors and musical performance from Paul Burch.
