2016 Literary Gazette

The River Reporter publishes the Literary Gazette annually. This literary arts journal is filled with essays, stories, poems, and photographs. The theme this year is “humor.”

The entries you will read are on any topic, but the overlying subject represents humor, whatever that means to the author. Any kind of humor works here: jokes, satire, dark humor, sarcasm, etc. This theme was open to interpretation, but will probably make the reader laugh, or at least smile.

Think of the Shouts and Murmurs section in The New Yorker (the only one worth reading—am I right?). Think The Onion. Think David Sedaris, or Mark Twain, or Shel Silverstein.

The photographs are by talented photographer Lawrence Braun. We talked about how the subject of humor is difficult to capture in a photo. I think Lawrence’s photos evoke an overall feeling of joy and laughter.
Of course, everyone’s idea of what’s funny is different, but I think you’ll find humor in these pages.
