Colorful! This is a colorful magazine, but it doesn't seem that way! Once you click on individual articles and scroll down, you'll find a colorful layout to enjoy.
Categories of writing. This magazine is full of short stories and poetry, but it's also full of non-fiction -- reviews of fiction, interviews, and essays about writers, genres, local literary scenes, architecture. Notice what category of writing you are reading by reading headings and asking yourself, "Is this an interview?" or "Is this an essay introducing a poem?" or simply, "What is this?!"
