New Lit on the Block :: Gigantic

Gigantic is a forthcoming print magazine of short prose and art (arriving in April) founded about a year ago by four former Columbia MFA students: Ann DeWitt, Rozalia Jovanovic, Lincoln Michel (who was a former reviewer at NewPages - Hi Lincoln!), and James Yeh.

In addition to publishing short and innovative fiction from such writers as Ed Park (founding editor of The Believer and author of Personal Days) and Justin Taylor (who has edited for McSweeney's), they have several interviews either completed or lined up with: Malcolm Gladwell, Gary Shteyngart, Sam Lipsyte, Tao Lin, as well as a conversation between Joe Wenderoth and Deb Olin Unferth.

Already on their website are "preview teasers" including a Prose preview, an Art preview, and most recently an Interview preview with excerpts from each of the aforementioned interviews - more than enough to pique a reader's curiosity!

Gigantic is open for submissions, and includes a list of "a few of our favorite things" to give writers an idea of the type of aesthetic they would be interested in seeing.

Gigantic is also the name of a kickass fanbois DVD documentary (which I may or may not own)about They Might Be Giants.

PS what's up, James
