Whistling Shade: A Twin Cities Literary Journal

Country: US
Total Issues: 50 (to Spring/Summer 2019)

A free quarterly literary journal. "The idea of a popular literary journal, cheaply or freely distributed in cafes or book stores, has never been tried in Minneapolis or Saint Paul, as far as I know. This is strange, because it is such an inexpensive and childishly easy thing to do. Whistling Shade is an attempt to bring poetry and short fiction to a wider audience."
