Superstition Review publishes 9th issue


April 04, 2012

Superstition Review, ASU’s online literary and art magazine, is proud to announce the release of Issue 9. After four months of dedicated work from founding editor Patricia Murphy, five faculty advisors, and a staff of 14 student interns, Superstition Review Issue 9 features work from 63 contributors in areas of art, fiction, interviews, nonfiction, and poetry.

Issue 9 showcases a diverse collection of literary and artistic talent, recognizing the work of celebrated artists such as Jonathan Faber, Sandra Cisneros, Marge Piercy, H. Lee Barnes and Peggy Shumaker. 

The publication will showcase the talent from Issue 9 from 7 to 9 p.m., April 6, at the Art Intersection in Gilbert. Art contributors Carolyn Lavender, Constance McBride and Marrisa Martinez will be giving presentations on their work. Superstition Review’s section editors will be highlighting their favorite selections from the magazine. 

The party will be catered by Pomegranate Café,  a restaurant in Ahwatukee known for its focus on organic ingredients that “tempt the palate and create well being.” Owner of the café, Cassie Tolman was the poetry editor for Issue 1 of Superstition Review.  

Superstition Review has published a new issue every spring and fall for the past four and a half years. It has provided students with invaluable knowledge of the literary, publishing and design fields. Past interns have entered graduate programs in creative writing, and jobs with web design firms, Copper Canyon Press and Penguin Books. 

Superstition Review’s sustainable online publication makes beautiful art and literature easily accessible to readers. Superstition Review honors the culture of reading and writing and connects lovers of art and literature together on its blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. 

Superstition Review is currently seeking interns for summer and fall 2012, particularly in the fields of creative writing, art, business and design.
