Slake, L.A.'s new quarterly "Slow Lit" journal from Joe Donnelly and Laurie Ochoa is here!
Here's what editor Joe Donnelly has to say:
"Our first issue is themed Still Life, as in there's still life out there despite the many challenges that beset us. Still life in storytelling, art, photography and human connection. Slake's first issue features 232 pages of narrative journalism, memoir, essay, fiction, poetry, art and photography. Every page of the book is handcrafted, from the painstaking care and detail of the art direction by the amazing Alex Bacon and Dan Peterka of Gama Function, to the writing, editing, art and photography.
We hope this is the beginning of a wonderful counterintuitive experience with Media. Something slower and more durable. A lasting experience."
