Lit journal, poetry, prose, illustrated, 77 pages, from Half Mystic.
Issue III of Half Mystic Journal is out now, a stunning compilation of contemporary art, lyrics, and writing in celebration of music in all its forms. This issue showcases the theme of nocturne: the midnight drive – the shadow dance – the things leftover when the music fades to black. In these increasingly bleak times we live in, our team believes it is more important than ever to lean into the dusk, if only for the promise of light buried deep within its folds.
This issue contains the voices of Alice Kristiansen, Maryse Meijer, F. Daniel Rzicznek, Kristin Berger, Dane Hamann, Audrey Lee, Sophia Terazawa, Lucy Ryan, Eliel Vera, Fin Sorrel, Kwan Ann Tan, Emily Blue, Erin Jin Mei O’Malley, Erica Bramham, Andy Powell, Eden Ariel, Hayley Reardon, and Anouk Vercouter.
The nocturne issue is a gorgeous volume of work that stretches out through darkness, plucks the strings of night, burns stars into being even in all this black. It is rich, abrupt, and unlike any of Half Mystic Journal’s previous issues. We could not be more honoured to share it with you.
