The Reverie Journal: Issue One Release Date

let's us on a little

This has been a long time coming, but we are so excited to announce the upcoming release of The Reverie Journal’s first issue – Available on Kindle October 9th!

That’s right. . .I said Kindle.

We struggled for some time trying to find the right outlet for our magazine. We wanted to showcase the amazing work submitted to us in the best possible way, and honesty, we just weren’t finding the right program to utilize.

So the magazine evolved and we decided to make this more of a book, allowing us the ability to truly customize it in the way we wanted and to offer all of you a beautiful, professional product.

In celebration of our first issue, you will be able to download the Kindle version for

FREE!

Also, for those that have asked, there will be a print edition available. For the poets featured in our magazine we will have a discount code for you to use for the print edition. This is just our way of saying thank you for all the hard work you put in and the patience you have shown while we worked out the kinks.

In the meantime, get ready to share with all your friends and family so we can make this launch a success!
