Editorial Reviews

Day One is a weekly literary journal dedicated to short fiction from debut writers, English translations of stories from around the world, and poetry. Each issue showcases one writer and poet and includes an introduction from the editor, an interview with the authors, and occasional bonus content. Day One features cover art commissioned from emerging artists and illustrators, and readers will learn more about the artist and the genesis of the cover each week.

"An amazing lineup of prose writers and poets." —Maria Popova, founder and editor of brainpicker.org

“Our world is filled with noise: the electronic whistle of a new text message arriving on our phone, the clack and clatter of television news anchors, the insistent mewing of a cute kitten in the latest video to hit your social media stream. Day One cuts through that distracting static to say in a very clear, loud voice: ‘Here is one story and one poem worthy of your attention for 30 minutes.’ You are well advised to pause the cat video, find an oasis of quiet, and settle in with these new and emerging voices in fiction and poetry. What they have to say brings clarity to our cluttered lives.” —David Abrams, author of Fobbit

Day One is for those who wish to read beyond ‘the news of the day’ to something that’s news everyday—that is, some of the best fiction and poetry by writers just setting out on the literary road. Each week, Day One presents a single piece of fiction and a poem, prefaced by a thoughtful and engaging introduction by the editor and followed by an informative commentary by the authors. A great way to spend your day—with the news of good writing.” —Daniel Halpern, author of nine books of poetry, and publisher and president of Ecco

By Robert Stein on November 1, 2013
Day One is a simple concept: one short story, one poem, and original cover art, delivered weekly to your Kindle. Based only on the debut issue, I'm very impressed. It was a quick read, but enjoyable and thought provoking. The thematic unity among the pieces was strong enough to create a surprising and welcome sense of depth.

The conversation between the author and poet following the pieces was interesting as well. I hope that is intended as a regular feature.

Time will tell whether the quality will hold up, especially with a weekly delivery schedule, but I'm a fan for now. I'm definitely looking forward to Issue 2.

UPDATE 11/7/2013: I just read the second issue. Again, the quality is impressive, as is the unity among the story and poem and cover. And again, the conversation between the author and poet is a welcome inclusion. This is a well produced journal, and an amazing value. Highly recommended.

I love having professionals choose good literature works for me. This is the chance to discover new writers and new genres of writings I might have otherwise miss. The first issue of Day One had been a wonderful read. Good writing has the power to move its readers. When I felt like being stabbed painfully in the heart, and curled up on the sofa thinking about what I just read, I knew I had to share these stories to my friends and family. This issue also includes a Q & A conversation section by the two writers. Gaining insight to their writing experiences was fun, but more importantly, it can be inspiring to readers who is looking to become a writer, professional or amateur. As a side note, now I have something to look forward to each week, which is always a nice bonus from subscriptions.

Update: Finished issue 2 within hours of its delivery (I savored each word). It still lived up to my expectations. This weeks short fiction and poem made a good pair. For sure I am going to continue subscribing after my 30 day trial expires.

I just finished reading Fault Line by Ryann Eastman. What a great story, and so well written. I am sorry it is a short story, as the characters and the topic scream for more story telling. Please write a full scale novel!

Being primarily a reader of horror and an occasional mystery/suspense book, I wasn't sure I was going to like this publication. I was pleasantly surprised about thoroughly enjoying the story in each of the two issues I've received so far. I'm not much for poetry so I can't really comment on the poems, but the stories were superb. And I'll admit to tearing up reading the story about the man and the dog ("Sheila") as I could easily relate to the man's dedication to his dog and reluctance to be left without her.

Even if you're like me and usually just read one or two genres, I still suggest subscribing to "Day One." It gives you a nice glimpse of other genres and other writers without requiring too much of your time, and the automatic delivery makes it ridiculously easy to "broaden your horizons" for lack of a better phrase.

"Day One" is undoubtedly a winner.

Here I sit with tears in my eyes, having just finished Sheila. Maybe because I've so recently felt the nearness of old age, maybe because I've had so many dear pets, I am deeply affected by this tale.

The story is so well wrought - all the details that describe a loving family life; the sons, adults now, cold and practical; the clarity of the old man's mind and his respect for the law. All these details draw the reader in, and lead inexorably to the surprising ending.

A wonderful read indeed! I look forward to seeing more stories from Rebecca Wright.

A weekly literary magazine like this is sorely needed. I used to buy magazines like The New Yorker for the fiction sections alone. Now I dont have to do that anymore. And at this price for the entire year, it is a bargain.

The story in the first issue was very well written too. Would like to see more from the same writer.

Looking forward to more quality writing in the upcoming issues.
Good initiative by Amazon, creating their own content like this magazine instead of just distributing.

Kudos to Amazon for giving new writers visibility---and for giving us access to their talents! And kudos to Rebecca and Zack, the debut writers, for their contributions to the first issue of Day One. "Sheila" is a pleasure to read---fine writing, excellent characterization, thoughtful theme, unexpected yet beautifully apt ending---a great read for animal lovers, sci-fi lovers and short story lovers alike. And the imagery in Zack's poem is striking and so wonderfully descriptive of Grandpa, reminiscent of the language of tall tales and yarns. I hope to see these two writers on Amazon again.

I rarely review anything that I buy, but I had no choice this time. I stumbled upon this literary journal a couple of weeks ago, and for the sale price and the 30-day free trial, I decided to give it a go. I am amazed and thoroughly intrigued by what I’ve read in the past three weekly issues. The stories are stimulating, the poems are flawless, and the discussions with the authors are absolutely satisfying.

While this may sound nerdy, these issues remind me of my college days—the days in which I had the pleasure of reading, analyzing, and discussing literature. Unfortunately, now that I’m out of college and not around literary souls, I don’t have the opportunity to talk about literature with like-minded people. For that reason, the authors’ discussions at the end of the journal issues have been an exciting part of the reading experience. The authors’ discourse allows me to get into the authors’ minds and “listen in” as they have scholarly Q&A sessions with each other. Issue 4’s discussion, though different from the structure in the other two issues I’ve read, offered just as much insight into the author’s thoughts and writing styles.

At the very least, this literary journal has reawakened my love for and fascination with words. Right now, I’m itching for a quiet, settled time of the day to sit and try my hand at writing once again.

Thanks, Amazon, for this wonderful addition to my Kindle collection!
