About Potluck Magazine:
Potluck Mag is a space to present a diverse and resonant collection of creative media, narrowing the gaps between different forms of art, ideas, and people. In seeking to create a community of artists, writers, and friends, Potluck Mag shares individual pieces to bring larger ideas of identity and culture to the table. We believe that if we are not actively pushing to promote the underrepresented, then we are passively working against them. Here at Potluck, we strive to serve and promote writers and artists whose voices might otherwise go unheard.
Potluck Mag was founded in January 2014 by John Surico, Nate Cabral, Melissa Cronin, Alexander Seedman, Max Schieble, and Leah Clancy in Brooklyn, NY. Since its inception, the website has published exciting works from hundreds of artists and writers from around the world. About Potluck’s FIRST print issue!
Released in July of 2015, the first print edition features 60 pages of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, photography, illustration, and more. It’s a fabulous compilation of artists from all over the place! It’s a real testament to the spirit of young, burgeoning creative communities.
