Ecotone {new literary journal}

Starting with the fall 2011 issue, Middlebury now has access to Ecotone, a newly distinguished literary magazine published at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Writings from Ecotone have been reprinted in Best American Short Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, Best American Science and Nature Writing, PEN / O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Pushcart Prize. Ecotone:

seeks to reimagine place. Each issue brings together the literary and the scientific, the personal and the biological, the urban and the rural. An ecotone is a transition zone between two adjacent ecological communities, containing the characteristic species of each. It is therefore a place of danger or opportunity, a testing ground. We embrace and celebrate these ecotones by breaking out of the pen of the purely literary and wandering freely among the disciplines.


Now available through Project Muse. Visit Ecotone’s website to see past archives.
