Since its inception in 2011, Tupelo Quarterly has demonstrated a commitment to innovative work that questions the boundaries of genres and mediums, publishing hybrid texts by notable multimedia practitioners alongside electrifying experiments by emerging artists. For TQ, championing work in innovative, cross-disciplinary forms is essential to publishing writers who challenge the status quo. After all, a groundbreaking message often requires new forms of discourse. With that in mind, this anthology documents a larger dialogue — about artistic risk, freedom in language, and what a literary text can be — that has unfolded in each issue across genres and creative disciplines. Please join us in celebrating eleven years of innovative writing, visual art, and multimedia texts in conversation.
