Featured Poetry


Featured Fiction

"Bread (after Ponge)"
By Sandra Simonds

"The surface of bread is fucking amazing and gives off the same phantasmagoric light that it takes —a diorama of light from the Alps, the Andes, the Sierras"
  "Those Who Leave, Those Who Stay"
By Elena Ferrante

"The men reached out their hands at every opportunity, they propositioned you if they merely passed by; and women, especially the ones who were not so young, laughed"


Featured Nonfiction


Featured Interview

"I Want You"
Rachel X Weismann

"I'm a woman trapped in a man's body. My father's words don't make sense, don't jibe with the 52-year old man in a corduroy suit sitting across"

In 'Fire And Forget,' Vets Turned Writers Tell Their War Stories

Joe Pan's brilliant and complex poem ODE TO THE MQ-9
, published in the war issue, is mentioned in the front
page article in The New York Times, titled Visions of Drones
Swarm the Skies Touch Bipartisan Nerve
. In Epiphany's War
Issue, we published both the ode and a "process piece" in which
the creation of the poem is discussed. Pan writes, "I no longer
cared if the poem was even a poem anymore--by this time it was
growing crazy appendages, moving awkwardly toward journalism,
criticism, polemic, autobiography--growing monstrous." Both the
poem and the process piece are a fascinating and worthwhile read.

Since the publication of Joe Pan's excerpt, three additional
contributors to the War Issue have been featured in the New York
Times series, "A War Before, and After."
Congratulations to Maurice Decaul, Matt Gallagher, Roy
Scranton, and Andrew Slater. To read their pieces, click the link below.
