Lit journal, poetry, prose, illustrated, 66 pages, from Half Mystic.
Issue IV 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 grazioso: the dream-bright waltz – the soft-stained song – the place where sunlight settles and nothing really hurts. There is so much melody to embrace here, so much tender curling blossom to call your own.
Issue IV contains the voices of Terry Abrahams, Devin Kelly, Kate Bucca, Maria Sledmere, Emily Paige Wilson, Jill Mceldowney, Chloe N. Clark, Yves Olade, Diane Blue-Solis, Sydney McNeill, Emily Blue, Jade Riordan, Eli Winter, The Woodlands, Dessa Bayrock, Margaryta Golovchenko, Donna Vorreyer, The River Has Many Voices, We Are The West, and Alexandra Eldridge.
The grazioso issue explores the music of growing gold in a time when the world feels overtaken by shadow. Issue IV: Grazioso is full of the rare kind of light that never drowned anything, the kind of light that knows only song. We have hope that this creation might help draw our aching world out of its endless, cacophonous dusk.
