I am the founding editor of Hobo Camp Review, a literary magazine celebrating the traveling word and the road-weary storyteller. Can you hear the highway? Can you smell the river? Sit a spell by the fire and tell us where you've been. We like travelers, troubadours, and transients of all shapes and sizes, especially those who can spin a good yarn, one with a sense of vagrancy, dark yet jovial and humble in the most outlaw manner possible. We envision Steinbeck, Li Po, McCullers, Bukowski, and Kerouac sitting around a campfire eating hot dogs and beans with a stray dog named Tom Waits wagging his tail at their feet. Be original. Be honest. Be on the move. We like tales from the road, Beat-ish poems with a little sparkle and a little dust, and stories that sound good by the firelight with the train somewhere in the distance, but that doesn’t mean that’s all we like. Try us, we’re an easy going lot.
