Congratulations to 5×5 Literary Magazine’s contributor Jack Bedell for his recent appointment as Louisiana’s new poet laureate! Gov. John Bel Edwards champions Jack Bedell and his work in the attached article, stating that “Bedell’s love for Louisiana is evident in his work, and I’m confident that he will serve honorably as the state’s poet laureate.” 5×5 editors are proud to have been able to include Bedell’s nonfiction piece “Old Story” in our most recent issue.

5×5 would like to take a moment to introduce Grace Campbell to our team. Grace was born, raised, and educated in New York. She currently lives and works in Olympia, Washington. Her work has appeared in The Santa Ana River Review, Wendigo, Black River Press, and elsewhere. Grace published her essay “wrapper/shoes” in the last issue of 5×5, and has since agreed to participate further by reading nonfiction submissions with S.J. Thanks for joining us, Grace! We’re so grateful to be working with you to create more issues of a magazine that seeks and celebrates writing that’s as strong and as clear as your own!
