THE WHITNEY REVIEW Of New Writing Issue #2
‘Dedicated to New Writing’
The Whitney Review of New Writing is a project by multi-magaziner Whitney Mallett (of Pin-Up, Editorial and Gayletter), who spotted a gap for a review dedicated to new writing, emphasis on the new. Instead of the long and sprawling essays by well-established writers regularly spotted in other reviews, The Whitney Review aims to shake up the traditional format of this genre of printed publication. Plus, it's mini broadsheet format featuring only text—there are no images in this publication—looks great.
After a very well-received red and black debut dedicated to ‘spirit, transmission, self-defense and sex’, this second issue takes a slightly darker turn, as marked by its (inky!) black cover overlaid with a splash of green: ‘desperation, excess, romance, and grief.’
