Apogee Issue 11 is here.

Dear Apogee Fam, For those of you who have been following us this past year, we’ve gone through some major transitions as a journal—including transitioning from print to digital issues. We made this decision to make Apogee more accessible to a wider range of readers. With web accessibility, we remain dedicated to bringing you voices that challenge the white cishetero patriarchal structure of mainstream publishing. As an entirely volunteer-based operation, we are dedicated to maintaining the integrity of our work while also ensuring that we can pay contributors. We rely on readers to support this effort. As reading and contest fees raise the barriers for entry, we want to imagine new ways of cultivating community support and the longevity of our readership. This is why we have decided to start using a monthly subscription feature for our new digital issues. This monthly subscription will help us raise consistent funds to pay our contributors, which is our top priority. We ask you to become a member and subscriber where you get access to content fitting your level of engagement with Apogee Journal, while helping us put our mission into practice. Apogee Issue 11 features work by Bahaar Ahsan, Rbrown, Lauren Camp,...

On Religion, Feminism, and writing Korean-American Characters: An Interview with R. O. Kwon

In her powerful debut novel The Incendiaries, R.O. Kwon explores the grief that comes with losing religious faith, abortion center bombings, cults, and first love through startlingly inventive prose. Phoebe Lin and Will Kendall are college students in love when John Leal, an elusive and charming religious fanatic, enters their lives. As John draws Phoebe into his cult, her relationship with Will begins to fray. Instead of telling this story in chronological order, The Incendiaries shifts the reader’s expectations by opening with an act of violence committed by the cult. As Will tries to retrace Phoebe and John’s steps, the reader joins him, confronting questions about god, terrorism, faith, and how well one can know another person along the way.
