UNL’s internationally recognized literary journal, Prairie Schooner, will continue recent innovations by making print issues available on Kindle starting with the summer 2012 issue. The issue mailed in mid-June.
This transition to Kindle puts Prairie Schooner in company with top literary magazines, such as the Atlantic and the New Yorker, which are available in an electronic format. The current issue of Prairie Schooner on Kindle cost $6.99.
Other new Prairie Schooner online efforts include the launch of the podcast series “Air Schooner” and the cross-cultural e-zine “Fusion.”
Under the direction of editor-in-chief Kwame Dawes, the summer 2012 issue features some of the biggest names in contemporary literature, including poetry by Sharon Olds, John Kinsella, Robert Gibb and Maxine Kumin, as well as fiction from Nancy Welch and the late Gerry Shapiro.
As the popularity of e-readers continues to grow, the Schooner will continue to offer its journal to readers and subscribers in a user-friendly format, said Marianne Kunkel, managing editor of the journal.
