Graze magazine

Graze is a semi-annual literary magazine based in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood that focuses on what's on the table as much as the folks sitting around it. We're interested in the stories that food tells about us—after all, our collective and individual human histories were nourished by the food that we made, smelled, ate, threw up, fucked up, and loved. Graze's first two issues are available at bookstores in Chicago and New York, as well as at

We are now seeking submissions for graze // issue three, which will be released in April 2013, and we'd like you to contribute some literary scribbles to this project by December 20. Suggested formats include . . .

ACLA, 4-7 April 2013, Toronto "Packing and Unpacking: On Portable Belongings and Identities "(DEADLINE: NOV. 15 2012)

How are these transformed by the spaces in which they are situated? What do we take with us to give us comfort when we leave our comfort zones?
