Coming Soon: Insights Literary/Art Journal

Next May, the Solon Center for Research and Publishing will announce its first literary/art journal. Stories from authors published and unpublished will debut here. Original art will accompany the stories. Most literary journals don’t have much art. We believe combining the two is the best way to make each medium come to life, which enhances the viewers/readers experience. We’ll host contests, working with Gallery Fukurou, of Rockland, Maine and the Maine publisher Polar Bear & Company. Stay tuned!
