Pinch Journal Issue 43.2 Release Party

The Pinch literary magazine celebrates the release of their fall edition of issue 43.2, marking almost 45 years as one of Memphis’s premier creative outlets. Founded in the 1970s, the journal is named after the Pinch district of Memphis and primarily managed by University of Memphis graduate students. This particular issue includes a “Worlds Beyond” section dedicated to just that – building otherworldly settings for readers to escape to.
Contributors from this issue will also be reading at the event. Samantha Edmonds’ “Eulogy for Carpenter Bees” is a poignant exploration of the narrator’s on-and-off relationship – and its eventual final “off” – alongside the narrator’s fear of and methods of exterminating bees. Her work can be found at
Allie Mariano’s “The Monsters Move Slowly” creates a world of unkillable giants ever-creeping towards us, a horror we can never truly escape from. Her work can be found at
The release party is scheduled for November 3rd from 6 P.M. – 8 P.M. The event is free and will take place at Arrow Creative, another prominent organization within Memphis’s increasingly diverse arts community, offering artist residencies, workshops, and more.
Free food and drinks will be provided. Participants can also purchase a copy of the journal at the event.
