Based in Los Angeles.
The wasteland T.S. Eliot talked about is over…Southern California is in a drought…We’re not looking for pretty little words.
We’re looking for words that drown out the chitter-chatter, the noise, the empty-spells, the NOISE. Colors, textures, cries, melodies..
Los Angeles land of all skin colors and all classes. We’re looking for Los Angeles. Waste…decay…rebirth and all.
drylandlit_press started off in 2015 as an online literary journal. After one year of internetting, it was decided that that format was getting old and burned out.
