046.2: The Offending Adam:: A Moment of Rest 046

To those readers who have faithfully read along with us for forty-six issues, and to those readers who have just arrived for the first time, we thank you for making this first year of publication successful and enjoyable. With the holidays fast approaching, and friends and family taking time out of their busy lives to enjoy a few moments of rest and community, we here at The Offending Adam are likewise hitting the pause button so that we can fully enjoy the holiday season. Fear not, though, dear readers: TOA returns with punch and power Monday, January 24. Until then, here are a selection of works that we have published in 2010, to either read for the first time if you missed them, or to rediscover. The Offending Adam

Our Year of 2010


A good place to start a review of our publications in 2010 is our Pushcart Prize nominees and our Best of the Web nominees.

Over the course of the year, we published a series of special issues: Launch Week, Prose & Poem, and Claim & Reclaim.

We also sought out longer works, publishing chapbook-length selections from Andrew K. Peterson, John Gallaher, Geoffrey G. O’Brien, and Dot Devota.

Some notable contributions were produced in collaboration, including work from Christopher Schaberg & Mark Yakich, Molly Bendall & John O’Brien, William Stobb & Cara Kluver & Zach Johnson, and Jon Cotner & Andy Fitch.

And then there were a number of contributions that delighted, surprised, and challenged us: Sasha Steensen, Bob Hicok, Alex Lemon, Andrew Zawacki, Joshua Harmon, Pat Nolan, Natalie Lyalin, David Welch, Julie Doxsee, Paul Legault, Ashley David, Thom Donovan, Matvei Yankelevich, Kendra Malone, Ever Saskya, Zach Savich, and Kate Greenstreet.

The above is a haphazard overview of some of the work we were lucky enough to curate through 2010. Many more delightful pieces of new writing, essays, reviews, and features are always ready for new readers.
