A Plate of Pandemic: Creativity in a Time of Crisis

Type Of Organization
(401) 364-0557
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
This online magazine's purpose is to offer, on a quarterly basis, a selection of fine writing and art that responds to this difficult time in particular, and perhaps, more generally, to all difficult times.  We are interested in publishing literary fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and artwork (of any photographable genre) that register such responses. The magazine's mission is to contextualize creative endeavor within the moment, which happens to be a time of crisis.  Right now artists are making art that wouldn’t have been possible during a pre-pandemic time, simply because the conditions of life have so suddenly and dramatically shifted. My hope, and the mission of A Plate of Pandemic, is to serve up some of this impressive work to a readership hungry and in need of sustenance. We are using images of antique dinner plates as website portals to the showcased works. The images on the plates provide a meta-commentary on the works featured.
