Here’s what co-editor D.A. Powell says about Lo-Ball:
“Lo-Ball is committed to being a low-cost journal with a high quality of content. We look expensive, but we can be had cheap. ($4.99 per issue? We’re practically giving it away)
The journal is a traditional digest-sized literary magazine publishing the finest poetry, non-fiction and fiction from both established and emerging writers. How we do it? We hustle. We hit up our friends. We trade on our good looks. And we make it look like we spent a fortune (which, with our meager funds, is in fact true).
Lo-Ball is not supported nor condoned by any academic institution. Our total print run is less than the number of wings in a value bucket from the closest chicken franchise. Not because we want it to be some rare treat. But because we want it to be passed around and talked about. Our motto: ‘our reputation rests in your mouth.’ Help spread the word.”
