Cuckoo Quarterly Issue 2 published
Cuckoo Quarterly, the new literary magazine created, written and edited entirely by young people, has had a phenomenal success with its first edition, which launched in October.
The editorial team has also been delighted with the wide range of submissions they received for issue 2, from as far away as India, the USA and Nigeria, some of which are featured in the issue, which is published today online.
Cuckoo Quarterly features writing of all forms, from poetry and short stories to periodicals, op-eds, interviews and reviews. It also features a regular “rant” section, where young people can vent their frustration on a topic of their choice.
Issue 2 includes an interview with writer and broadcaster Jon Ronson, who spoke to 15-year-old journalist Dani Watson. In the interview, Ronson supports the online magazine, and urges other young writers to contribute: “When I was about seventeen I started writing for my college newspaper,” he says. “And even though anyone could write for it I think it’s really important to get your writing printed, because it’s something concrete that other people can read. My advice is to keep writing and publishing it on the internet so other people can read it.”
You can read Issue 2 of Cuckoo Quarterly at www.cuckooquarterly.com where you can also find details of how to submit your work for Issue 3. The deadline for submissions is 28 March.
