Hello fellow writers, artists, and lovers of both! Welcome to the new, exciting project that is Turnpike Magazine. We are excited, humbled, and proud to begin this journey and to contribute to the creative community.
Our team is devoted to highlighting themes and voices you may not readily find in other publications. We aim to focus on positive topics: joy, gratitude, hope, love (when it goes right), perseverance, and more. Turnpike was also designed as a space for voices of all identities and backgrounds, to share their experiences in a safe and uplifting environment, highlighting LGBTQ+ voices, artists of color, and other underrepresented folk. We want to be that breath of fresh air, that source of sunshine you look forward to soaking up. However, we will take all forms of writing and visual art into consideration. If you would like more information, please visit our About page or feel free to contact us!
To our friends and supporters: we want to thank you for believing in us and for being here for our newest endeavor. This is something we have aspired to create for quite some time.
And if you are interested in being a part of our first issue, please check out our Submissions page!
We look forward to hearing from you, to sharing in your work, and to creating something beautiful, together.
– matthew & natasha, the turnpike team
