Midnight Breakfast Makes an Awesome Debut!


Rumpus interviews editor Rebecca Rubenstein recently launched a kick ass online literary magazine, Midnight Breakfast. The folks over at Vela Magazine were quite impressed with MB and Rumpus contributor Kima Jones‘s CNF piece, “The Aqiqah”:

“It’s always exciting to see a new literary site launch, especially when it includes complimentary original artwork. But when I saw that Kima Jones was included in the inaugural issue of Midnight Breakfast, I was even more excited. I’ve been following Jones’ poetry and Twitter feed for a while, but this is was the first piece of her nonfiction that I’ve encountered. I liked it as much for what it didn’t do as for what it did: instead of launching into mile-long rumination and explanation, Jones instead revealed her story with careful, cut-to-the-bone details and images that allowed her characters to come alive. Can’t wait to see more from her, and Midnight Breakfast.”

Midnight Breakfast has launched a crowd funding campaign to keep the magazine free and to pay their writers. Please check out the video and consider donating and/or sharing the link.
