Artichoke Haircut

The editors of this hand-sized fiction and poetry magazine have only put out about five issues total in the publication's history, but the staff- Jon Gavazzi, Adam Shutz, Melissa Streat, and Justin Sanders-bring an abundance of attitude and energy to everything under the Artichoke Haircut umbrella. Basically, they approach the literary world with the intelligent irreverence that runs through local music and art, and it shows up in everything, from the magazine to its blog (see: Justin Sanders' post "Go-Go Dancers Strategically Placed in Literature") and especially its "You're Allowed" reading series and open mic, which hews closer to engaged performance than mere recitation.
