A digital, literary micro-magazine, Under the Gum Tree is a non-fiction storytelling project, published by my colleague Janna Marlies Santoro. She says,

The concept was born out of my desire to live more vulnerably, more authentically and to help others do the same. To me, that means sharing the hard stories: the ones we’re ashamed of, embarrassed of, the ones we usually try to keep hidden.

I am on the editorial board of the project, and as such was able to read and select the pieces that appear in the premiere issue. It is a full 89 pages, and includes photographs, a photo essay by Jeannine Mengel, excerpts from Peter Grandbois The Arsenic Lobster, a film feature by Jeremy Maron, poignant stories by both emerging and established authors, including Kate Washington, Alexa Mergen, Ronna Detrick, Debra Meltvedt.

The magazine format is a lovely addition to the field of fine literary and arts mags, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
