We’re excited to announce the launch of independent film magazine Bright Wall/Dark Room on our platform. Conceived in 2009, BW/DR gathers together writers, poets, filmmakers, and artists who reflect on the movies that mean something to them: what they love, what they hate, what they can’t stop thinking about. Their August issue—the second in a two-part series inspired by America/Americana—features essays on some of our favorite classic films including Jaws and Rocky.

We’re looking for a web-savvy, hyper-literate fall semester intern to start in September for 5 to 8 hours per week. Basic knowledge of HTML & CSS is a plus! This is a compensated position. Please email your resume and cover letter in the body of your email (no attachments, please) to with “Intern” in the subject line. Be sure to include your blog URL (if you have one), Twitter handle, and a list of your favorite media (books, TV, movies, magazines, websites, etc.).

We look forward to hearing from you!

Little Star Weekly — August 15 & 22, 2014
Behold, our double summer issue. A more than usually big and juicy bite of reading for your long train rides and cicada-filled afternoons on the porch swing.  Our theme, more or less, is the carnal and its aftermath. Poems about Bette Davis and Frankenstein from Judith Berke and James Arthur, small stories from Rav Grewal-Kök, student, and Eliot Weinberger, master of the form. And a big suspenseful piece of serial from NYR blog regular Tim Parks. Don’t worry, you don’t have to have read Part One, although you can easily download it from the little chest of drawers if you tap this screen.  All you need to know is that a man and his girlfriend are trying to elude the porter in her building complex. Complications ensue.
