Many thanks to editors Matthew Broderick and Becky Tuch of The Review Review for sending Pembroke Magazine‘s latest issue to me. The best part of writing reviews for them is being given the excuse to read a magazine that’s new to me, and studying it, and learning from it. Link to my review here.
This review touches upon a few of the issue’s rich trove of contents, but I encourage you to find and read the full magazine. I brought it on a camping trip with me and it was all the reading I did that weekend. Wonderful and entertaining variety of voices and styles.
Hot tip: Submissions open on 9/1/18 for Issue 51. According to their submissions manager, Submissions are free in September, otherwise a $3 fee applies. Make sure what you send is darned good, though!
