Christopher Lowe is the editor and Carli Castellani the artistic director of Trigger, a new bi-annual publication from Status Hat Productions that showcases fiction, poetry, and visual art. Available online, each edition of Trigger will focus exclusively on a different topic relating to the exploration of narrative's role in the arts. The first edition, released on July 1, is a collaborative project, pairing visual artists with writers - eight artists and eight writers shared works to create 16 new creations. Each of the contributors was also asked to share notes about their process and approach to the response pieces they created as part of the project.
Contributors to this first issue include Meagan Dye, J. Bruce Fuller, Russie Wight-Waltman, Erica McCreedy, Marjorie Maddox, Hillary Joubert, Mojie Crigler, Gabrielle Grace, John Peterson, Howie Good, Emily Alford, Liam Daly, Ryan De La Hoz, Joshua Canipe, Steven Brown, and Tim Bruehl.
