A HISTORY OF FENCE: Including Essays by FENCE Editors and Selected Articles and Interviews
With most of the entirety of the published journal's contents read aloud by the authors, the FENCE audiobook/podcast continues to push boundaries in literary publishing. In continuous publication since 1998, Fence is a biannual print journal of poetry, fiction, art, and criticism that redefines the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. FENCE is committed to publishing from the outside and the inside of established communities of writing, seeking always to interrogate, collaborate with, and bedevil all the systems that bring new writing to light. As a non-profit, FENCE is mandated to make decisions outside of the requirements of market force or capital concern, and only in keeping with its mission: to maintain a dedicated venue for writing and art that bears the clear variant mark of the individual’s response to their context; and to make that venue accessible to as many, and as widely, as possible so that this work can reach others, that they may be fully aware of how much is possible in writing and art; such that Fence publishes almost entirely from its unsolicited submissions; and is committed to publishing the literature and art of queer writers and writers of color. All material is (c) Fence Magazine, Incorporated.
Rebecca Wolff is the founder and editor-in-chief of FENCE magazine.
This podcast was produced and edited by Jason Zuzga.
