“If we remembered the truth, the descriptions would change…” Sarah Smarsh writes in her Issue 10 piece, Revision.
What’s a magazine but a memory-keeper? Something of a place, often, and particular time, always. Our tenth issue holds mystical value as a milestone of memory. Many independent magazines don’t make it this far, and we intend to collect the Lower Midwest’s memory for much, much, longer. Issue 10 starts with photos of floods and fishing and celestial phenomena over the Sandhills — all themes prone to exaggeration yet recorded here as truth. Then dive into conversations about magazine-making, features on family history, a literature section by some of the heaviest hitters in Midwest writing, and a long piece on Missouri’s state wine grape and how it changes across a small landscape.
Remember, when you buy a copy of The New Territory, you not only get more intimate with the Lower Midwest. You directly support the people who archive and interpret our region’s collective memory.
