Head on over to our new website!

We decided to make the switch and move our website to 1932quarterly.com.  So, if you want to keep up on what is happening with the journal head on over, since our wordpress.com site will not be up-kept. Don’t worry, it’s still the same great style and content just with an awesome domain name all our own.

Panel 1

We Are 1932

Named after Plath’s birth year, 1932 Quarterly was born in a swimming pool in the Midwest as a way to bring people from all over the world together in one place. We accept submissions from people in every walk of life, every background, every age, every language, dialect, and style. Our mission is to bring little pieces of the hearts and minds of unlikely friends from all over the world together in four yearly books.

Letter from the Editor

Dear readers, submitters, and curious folk alike,

I’ve always been awful at missing people -utterly and completely terrible at it. I’ve been lucky enough to live in dozens of cities and countries across this darling earth and I’ve been even luckier to fall in love with the vast number of people I’ve met. Unfortunately, I’ve had to leave everyone I’ve ever loved as well. I’ve always wished for one thing and one thing only, and that was to bring all of the people who’ve ever made me feel alive, youthful, electric, comforted, not alone, appreciated, and sublimely happy in one place and that’s what I plan to do with 1932 Quarterly. 1932 Quarterly is my way of having everyone I’ve ever loved -from Seattle to London to Philly to Vienna and everywhere in between- in one place. At least between the covers of 1932 Quarterly they’ll all be in one place and it will bridge the distance gap. So this is about bringing unlikely people together and building an everlasting bond and it has been such a beautiful and fulfilling endeavor so far.
