New Issue of Literary Magazine Iconoclast in Works

By | February 22, 2022

The Iconoclast, Daemen’s literary magazine, is accepting submissions of creative work – fiction, nonfiction, poetry, illustration, photography and animation and illustration – by March 3.

Works should be submitted to with brief sentence biographical statement. Certain limits on the length and scope of work apply. 

Serving as staff advisor is Joe Hall, a research and instruction librarian at Daemen since 2019. 

“It’s important to offer students a chance to create – to not just be consumers of content,” said Hall, who will teach a creative writing course in the Department of English this fall. “Writing and creating can be spaces of total freedom that you may not find in other disciplines. You can safely engage the world and self.” 

Hall earned a PhD in English Literature from the University at Buffalo in 2018. He has authored five collections of poems, including Pigafetta Is My Wife, The Devotional Poems, and Someone’s Utopia. Another, Fugue & Strike, will be published next year. 

At the Research and Information Commons, Hall also hosts Friday Free Writes, which offer students a space to be creative through prompts – and where they can share work and build community – with food provided as well.
