Mayhem for Your Mind
Raleigh's first ever Literary Death Match was the most successful per capita in the global event's storied history. Writer Jodi Vickers took home the championship. Jodi's story, "Gimp," is here for your perusal and pleasure. If you're faint of heart, please know that you probably will, indeed, faint -- perhaps waking up in the arms of one of the story's inappropriately dressed hockey players, which would no doubt put you into a bona fide coma. Thanks to Opium Magazine for teaming with the RQ on the Death Match success (http://www.literarydeathmatch.com/journal).
As always, check out the site for new poetry and art. Elsewhere, the RQ is loving Jess Walter's The Financial Lives of Poets. We've heard the middle-class angst-monster plot line before, but the writing is exhilaratingly fresh. What are you digging? What are you writing? What's stopping you from submitting and getting famous?
As always, don't forget to pick up the inaugural print edition of the RQ at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, the Regulator in Durham and through Etsy.com. And don't forget to keep coming back to RaleighQuarterly.com. We're always adding something worth seeing. There, not a single typo.
