From Our Founding Editor
I started GCR because I was interested in using it as a kind of literary imagination, its members a collective of writers dedicated to creating a resonant space. I also started a reading series where writers and readers could expect an editorial point of view that was an investigation and interpretation of literature, ideas, societies, psychologies, intellectual constructions and cultures. So in both the public programming and the magazine I was exploring ideas that interested me. I consider the thematic issues artistic and intellectual projects, each as more than the sum of its individually authored parts. The pieces are chosen for their originality and the convincing information they bring to the reader--and fine writing is of course efficacy of form married to exactitude of vocabulary. Taken together the pieces comment on topics in ways that illuminate innate structures and ask philosophical, social and moral questions.
Praise for GLOBAL CITY REVIEW
"The exciting Global City Review...is a rich treasury of contemporary social thought and artistic expressions, defending a humanistic view of the individual in a complex society."
A few more journals like Global City Review, and literary periodicals just might get a bit more news rack respect.
~Los Angeles Times Book Review
Each issue of this truly small (4 1/8" X 6 3/4") journal is constructed around a single theme...while maintaining a mix of post-modern literary criticism and progressive world views.
