What is essential? That’s the question a pandemic forces us all to ask. Is a root canal? Are weddings? Chips and salsa? Haircuts? What about literary magazines? We sure think so, even when funding gets cut. We get it. Times are tight. They told us our next issue could only be one page long. But they didn’t say how L-O-O-O-NG of a page. Snatching the final roll of toilet paper off an otherwise empty shelf gave us an idea. Sooner or later we’re finally going to turn the page on this pandemic. Until then, we give you Belletrist 5. Seven stories of essential unraveling, each printed on a single line, unfurl across a 33-foot scroll. Order your tube today!
