Rebranded and better than ever.
CP Quarterly (FKA Crêpe & Penn) was founded out of love for the craft and a need to fill the world with exciting literature that speaks to all kinds of people. It was founded by a woman who just wants to read and write poetry and make crêpes and drink coffee out of big mugs and collect colorful pens. And if that’s not a good reason to start a lit mag, then what is?
Madison Kalia is a practicing alchemist with lots of tenacity and overwhelming emotions! When she isn’t writing poetry, she enjoys reading manga and writing anime mashups. She is a Delta State University alumna, the author of Solf, Wolf and has work published/forthcoming with Parentheses Journal, Delta Arts Literary Journal, Pink Plastic House, and others. She can be found on Twitter @MadisonKalia.
Sam Frost is a writer who digs her past up and spews it onto the page, spends too much time and money drinking kombucha, and is always craving fast food breakfast. Find more work at The Hellebore, Kissing Dynamite Poetry, Floodlight Poetry, and elsewhere. Find her on Twitter and Instagram @sammfrostt.
