What is Dispatches?
Dispatches is a magazine made in Berkeley, California, bringing you strong, original voices that tell stories through art, articles, fiction, poetry, and photography.
What makes it different from the rest?
I think Dispatches’s commitment to voice and personal experience — harnessed around a theme to help stimulate thought — allows us to present you with a mosaic of unique perspectives.
Who makes Dispatches?
A small team of Californians with a wide range of interests and a passion for words and ideas well said.
Who reads it?
Hopefully, more and more people every day who are looking for incisive thought. People looking for a plurality of ideas and interests, well-articulated and emotionally resonant.
Why do you work in magazines?
I guess I kind of fell into it. But I love the grouping of minds and talents together to bring something off the ground that we’re all proud of. Plus, as far as editing is concerned, I really enjoy the process of helping a writer articulate their vision.
Aside from the print magazine, what else are you involved in?
I do some freelance writing, some of my own writing, some research for a cultural historian, and I have a full-on, head-over-heels love for film. Watching movies, reading about movies, writing about movies.
What would you change about Dispatches if you could?
I don’t know yet, it’s pretty dreamy to me.
Where do you see Dispatches in five years?
Good question. In the hands (physically or digitally) of a lot of people. With a little help from a lot of friends, that should be possible.
