New Issue of the Lowestoft Chronicle Now Available

What's in Season @ Lowestoft Chronicle?

Check out the latest issue of Lowestoft Chronicle, the free online magazine featuring fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and interviews.

Ascend with Lowestoft Chronicle this winter!

In Issue 48: A doctoral candidate lands a three-month study abroad opportunity in Barbados and swiftly becomes a newsworthy Caribbean personality. Romance blooms while a withering magic show descends into chaos at a retirement home in Pittsburgh. A drifter imprudently misses his scheduled ride off a small, isolated island and then overstays his welcome with the disobliging local deadbeats. And devious thieves test the mettle of a salesman with big plans during his 1941 business trip to the Big Apple.

We proudly present the work of Linda Ankrah-Dove, Rob Dinsmoor, Paul Gray, Spencer Harrington, Bruce Harris, Richard Holinger, Matthew Menary, Jon Moray, Dan Morey, Alfredo Quarto, Marc Simon, Steve Slavin, and Melissent Zumwalt.

Our thanks to all contributors, as well as everyone who submitted work to us. We are currently accepting submissions for Issue #49 (due on March 1st). Preference is given to humorous submissions with an emphasis on travel. See our submissions page for guidelines.
