Reading Lists

As we have worked remotely in recent weeks, the editors of Burnaway have compiled a series of thematic reading lists of stories drawn from the magazine’s archives. While we find ways to navigate the new structure of our daily lives, we are doing our best to take advantage of the opportunities for slowness and reflection afforded by isolation. The process of organizing these reading lists has given us an opportunity to view our own recent work in a different context, highlighting previously unseen relationships and suggesting surprising connections. This is part of the beauty of magazines, especially digital ones: the modularity of their structure, their capacity to be rearranged to produce new readings, new feelings.
