Countdown to Early Harvest

Countdown to Early Harvest

What makes a good theme for a literary mag? Something encompassing, but not too big, neither too narrow. A phrase or a word that allows writers – or poets, or comic artists – to fidget about in, and invent stories of their own. A kind of guiding light through the creation process, without being too blinding. Sometimes we started with a word quite small, and worked outwards to a place where...

Mentoring Early Harvest

Mentoring Early Harvest

Hey everyone, guess who’s back? (That was a rhetorical question, but it would be really creepy if you did know.) Miab! I was an editor of early harvest in 2013. This year, I am sticking out this great experience once again but I am not an editor. In fact I am a mentor for this year’s editorial board. The reason I have chosen to come back is because the Early Harvest project was honestly...
