Traditional editors loom large on the literary scene, and their role as gatekeepers is still seen with some reverence as well as consternation. With the expansion of cyber literary forums, literary zines, e-books, and the social media, I looked around to find a bevy of smart eager editors (who are writers too) steering zines as well as print journals that don’t always cater to the mainstream. The editorial practices of these people are not too different from their traditional counterparts.

This startling image was shot in Provincia Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, by German artists Cenci Goepel and Jens Warnecke,
The photo is part of a series called "Lightmark." According to the artists' website, Lightmark "was created by photographing moving light sources at night. Long exposures, up to an hour in length, are required to allow torchlight to take form and for the very low level of ambient light, usually from the moon, to illuminate the scenery. Using a digital medium format camera for their photography, Goepel and Warnecke focus on photographic techniques rather than post processing to achieve the results they are aiming for. The couple travel all over the world in search of locations with secret natures they seek to reveal through their light paintings."
