In 2005, Brigid Hughes, the former executive editor of The Paris Review founded A Public Space, a non-profit, independent, quarterly literary and culture magazine. “In an era that has relegated literature to the margins,” says A Public Space in their “about us” section, “we plan to make fiction and poetry the stars of a new conversation. We believe that stories are how we make sense of our lives and how we learn about other lives. We believe that stories matter. “

Issue 4 is now available to pre-order, with excerpts on the site, like this interview with poet Bill Manhire on the link between Antarctica and New Zealand or this one to Jack Livings’s short story “The Heir,” about a man named Omar who loved fighting the Chinese way.
