Thank you for visiting Lightning Key Review, our island for pithy, poetic narrative. All writing, we are convinced, tells a good story economically. Inspired by this idea, four years ago we challenged a circle of poets and fictionists to compose a single page of engaging pithy, poetic narrative every two weeks. The challenge was a great success. The sea floor opened up for us, and those first few crags of Lightning Key poked up through the waves. As we brought this narrative approach into all our writing classes—creative and expository—we imagined the sand and rocks congealing into a small landmass—a venue for our sort of writing and writers, an online magazine with international scope. Enjoy, contribute, thrive.
