“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.” - Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar & Lenore’s Publishing House of Sherman Oaks releases its first annual journal. Edgar & Lenore’s Publishing House has come a long way since 2003 (a simple url) and since 2008 when the website was only a single page containing a few excepts of work & a blog link where you might find editorials, reviews on writers, film, art and music about an admired creative collective.
While the journal highlights a myriad of voices from across the globe including U.S, Canada, Australia, Ireland, U.K, France, Turkey, Spain & Israel local writers include: Bill Friday, Cedric Drake, Danny Baker, David McIntire, Jessica Ceballos, JR Phillips, Marie Lecrivain, Neil McCarthy, Rick Stepp-Bolling.
With 32 writers total, this intoxicating collection pierces the silence in today’s world creating an exceptional body of work, submerging readers into bewitching inspiration.
Edgar & Lenore’s Publishing House announces with considerable privilege and appreciation the first annual publication, Edgar Allan Poet Journal #1, in celebration of the press history and evolution as an online, international archive. It is the purpose of the editor to provide readers with inspiration of both voice and vision.
Many themes have arisen within this collective as it pertains to the exploration of the macabre, mysterious and ethereal realms presented in the work itself. Literature contained within presents patterns and reflection with lunarscapes, oceans and the mortal condition as muse. The common thread holding this cacophony of consciousness together is the gravity of shadow and the ability to captivate readers with the art of storytelling through images or texts, or the cohesive manifestation between these unique elements.
You are encouraged to take a quiet, poetic pause to read and experience the rest of the wonderful writers highlighted on the website. The spirit of Edgar Allan Poet has always been a manifestation of varied, individual voices and perspective, each with a unique poetic sway.
This journal has been the vision of EAP for a decade, and something the press has been howling for since its early manifestation.
