Sometimes an innovation is so logical that its arrival is greeted by the response "You mean someone hasn't done this yet?" Audio books have been popular for years, but a literary magazine in audio is something brand new. Now you can listen to the best voices in literature reading their own work, whenever or wherever you want. Fiction, poetry, and music come together to create something new: "Verb". Original stories and poems you won't find anywhere else, by the best writers in the country, are brought to you in an innovative format. "Verb's" first two issues brought you: new fiction from Tom Franklin, George Singleton, Ed Falco, Stuart Dybek, and Pulitzer Prize - winner Robert Olen Butler; new poetry from Kurtis Lamkin, Thomas Lux, Elise Paschen, Marjory Wentworth, and Chris Forhan; a previously unreleased recording of the late great James Dickey reading a ghost story and one of his most enduring poems, "The Sheep Child"; and original music from author Stuart Dybek and Americana favorite Peter Case.
Daren Wang is producer of "Spoken Word," a literary radio show sponsored by the Southeastern Booksellers Association. He helped found the Decatur Book Festival. He lives in Decatur, Georgia.
Verb: Issue Two will feature fiction by Stuart Dybek, George Singleton, and Silas House, poetry by Connie May Fowler, Kurt Brown, and Elise Paschen, a musical story by singer/songwriter Peter Case, and songs and poetry by Kurtis Lamkin. And that's just for starters - Verb: Issue Two continues to bring you bold, brilliant writing in a great new format.
