Caper Literary Journal's 9th issue contains several pieces of work, including adopted pieces from the now-closed Writers Bloc Journal.
We are ecstatic to present the 1st and 2nd place winners of our Maravillosa Literary Contest in addition to a great deal of new poetry and prose, with art by Alexandra Burguieres.
Please note Caper Literary Journal will be publishing less work each issue as 2011 comes along, in addition to a new publishing element: we will feature work from a writer of a different country in each issue.
Upcoming Events: Caper Literary Journal's Oct. 29 Masquerade Literary Party at Happy Ending Lounge was wild! Thanks for coming. We have 2 readings coming up: The Burlesque & Lit night at Happy Ending Lounge, co-hosted with The Fiction Circus. And a night of intimate literature at KGB Bar.
