The 22 Magazine Volume 3/III/Three.

We are so incredibly honored to present The 22 Magazine Volume 3/III/Three. The amount of talent that has accumulated over these past couple of years is beyond anything anticipated and we cannot thank enough all the contributors, volunteers, supporters, and fans who have made this magazine a reality and have chosen to support creative grit. This week we will be releasing the web version of The 22 Magazine and will shortly have the magazine available online to purchase in print. From the beast’s of Allison Sommers, the terrain of Nick Lamia, to the virtues and sins of Nicole Gordon, and Joseph Daley, the animals of Angeline Gragasin, the patterns of Bradley Ehrsam, the great paradox’s of Charlotte Greenwood, the artistic statements of Cless and Jeff Tigchelaar, the true words of Gerardo Mena, the steely sounds of Iron Dog, the evolutionary debates of Jason Stoneking, and Randy Mora, the stereovisions of Jim Ford, the outsider truths of JJ Cromer, the secular geometries of Megan Moncrief, the botanical commemoration of Penelope Gottlieb, the multi layered records of Sarah Boothroyd, and the joyous apocalypse of Ricky Allman this volume is a cacophony of world ending beauty. This volume, this year, we ask, as you near the apex of 2012, to celebrate both the hard times and the good and to appreciate what is certain in this life, the notions of creativity in all their great, imagined forms.

Thank you again to all the contributors, volunteers, and supporters that make The 22 a reality. Without a doubt, we shall see you in the coming year.

Meet our interns!

I’m so pleased to introduce you to two excellent interns who are helping make the magnificence of Volume 3 possible. I’m completely honored to have the brains of these talented folks contributing to the magazine. We’ve had a lot of help over the years but the interns are often in the thick of it, helping to put the behemoth that is the magazine itself together. I cannot thank everyone enough who contributes to this project and particularly these worker bees. Give them a round of applause and if you are interested in jumping into the fray of Volume 3/III/Three check out our intern/volunteer guidelines here.

Bradley Tsalyuk was born in L.A. He attended L.A. County High School for the Arts with a focus on visual arts. He now studies at the Musem of Fine Arts in Boston where he focuses on interdisciplinary art making employing performance, sculpture, installation, and photography.

Carolyn Supinka is a senior at Carnegie Mellon University, studying Creative Writing and Art. She is interested in the relationship between text and visual art, and experiments with a broad range of mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, and performance. She also collaborates with musicians to create spoken word performances. Her work has been featured in Dossier,The Oakland Review, Fjords Review, and the Naugatuck River Review.

Volume 3: Writers Deadline Extension.

A little update on Volume 3 of The 22 Magazine, we are currently still in the process on deciding on contributors for Volume 3/III/Three. As always the decision has proven to be twice as hard as more and more talented folk submit. That being said, we are still looking for the perfect pieces of written word (particularly fiction or nonfiction pieces) to accompany most of this beautiful art and music. We will be extending the deadline for writing submissions only to June 12th. Included below is a list of “inspiration” or ideas about what we are looking for in a story. Good luck and thank you for all the amazing submissions so far. Truly an honor to review them all!
