Peach Mag is an independent literary publishing project with an online journal, print anthologies, and live and virtual events. I cofounded the project with Matthew Bookin and Bre Kiblin in 2016 and have served as its editor in chief for the seven years since. Peach Mag is currently powered by a team of ten editors and designers in eight cities across North America.
Through Peach Mag, my team and I have published nearly 700 individual features of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual art by mostly emerging poets, writers, and artists. I have also designed and published two anthology series, including creating video trailers and working with guest editors; organized over 30 readings, benefit events, book launches, and parties; and mentored many teenage aspiring editors through our annual Peach Seed Apprenticeship for Emerging Editors.
The work we publish has appeared on Entropy's annual "Best of" lists and has been a finalist for the Pushcart Prize. Our publications, programming, and editorial initiatives have earned us recognition on Entropy's "Best of: Literary Journals" list for 2018 and 2019, Nostrovia! Press's 2017 list of publishers that "won't waste your time," and profiles in both regional and national outlets.
