Look at us, we’re launching!

The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived! The new and improved Segullah literary journal is here!

In the January issue, headed up by Prose Editor Holly Baker and Poetry Editor Lara Niedermeyer, we are delighted to feature thoughtful, funny essays and poems. While  Joni Neal’s essay, “The Strength to Laugh at Flour,” resonated particularly with me, since I, too, have been known to fall asleep sitting up at the end of a long day with small children, but the feeling of being completely wrung out is a universal that we relate to regardless of circumstance.

Melonie Cannon’s new poem “Sacred Geometry” makes shapes and figures seem accessible and familiar to even the most stalwart math phobes. While Sharlee Glenns’ “Mimesis Upended: A Reluctant Nod to Mr. Wilde” and Karen McKnight Findlay’s “nervous (happily)” are greats from our archives.

We plan to update our content monthly, so click on over to the literary journal and find plently more of Segullah to love!
