Join Columbia University in the launching of their new literary review, The Line, a non-profit journal exclusive to veteran writing. Tomorrow, January 27th at 7:00pm EST, The Line launches with work by Matt Gallagher, Lindsay Swoboda, Bob Hanson, and J.H. Crain. The Line will also feature readings by writers from Words After War, Women Veterans Empowered and Thriving, Voices From War, Warrior Writers, United States Veterans’ Artist Alliance (USVAA), and the Writer’s Guild’s Veterans Writing Project.
The Line is committed to a new generation of creative veterans, spotlighting those driven to produce contemplative, compelling, and cathartic content. Our primary focus is to publish veteran literature, art, social commentary, and reviews; we will consider any material created to bridge the gap between veterans and contemporary audiences.

Each Tuesday we feature audio or video of an SR Contributor reading their work. Today we’re proud to feature a podcast by Saramanda Swigart.

She recently completed an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University, and a supplementary degree in literary translation. Her short work has appeared in Fogged Clarity, The Literati Quarterly, and Thin Air; and her work has received an honorable mention from Glimmer Train. She is working on her first novel, Meaning Machine, about a family’s incompatible coping strategies in the face of loss.
