The This Magazine is the brainchild of two friends—a mutual endeavor to deliver insatiate readers garden-fresh, imaginative works by the best of today’s emerging writers. Their collective is based loosely upon an idea, one shared by the likes of Cesar A. Cruz, David Foster Wallace, Banksy and Finley Peter Dunne, that art should comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. They feature provocative and experimental works of literary merit, accentuated by the arresting art and photography of resident and guest artists.
