"Pride", Hearth & Coffin's Sophomore Installation, Out Now

Hearth & Coffin's second issue, "Pride", published digitally on June 28.

NEW YORK (June 28, 2021) – The sophomore issue of New York transplant literary journal Hearth & Coffin has officially published. Featuring a brief collection of prose and poetry on the intentionally vague theme of Pride, writers from across the United States and Europe turned out to define the theme their own way: a sense of community? A character flaw? A deadly sin?

A follow-up to the journal's inaugural issue Conception, the intention of Pride was to continue the journal's celebration of diverse voices and exploratory works.

"The theme was a little tongue-in-cheek; as a LGBTQ-owned journal, of course we were aware of our second issue publishing during Pride Month," says Barrett White, editor-in-chief. "That said, we intentionally did not prescribe meaning to the theme because aside from the obvious influence of the month itself, the term 'pride' could mean so many different things. We were so fortunate to see such a breadth of definitions in our submissions."

In late March 2021, the journal's inaugural issue Conception made a splash with 40 works by nearly 30 prose writers and poets from around the globe. Hearth & Coffin's forthcoming issue, themed "Strange & Unusual", will accept submissions from July 15 through August 31.

Interested parties are asked to review Hearth & Coffin's FAQ page for more information regarding submission deadlines, publishing dates, themes, and much more.
