Published by the Creative Writing Department at Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, Punctuate is a new online magazine that features non-fiction pieces including essays, interviews, and book reviews. Established in 2015 and regularly updated, Punctuate publishes work from both established and emerging writers. As the magazine notes, it "publishes traditional and experimental writing side-by-side, showcasing a mosaic of forms that push disciplinary boundaries, including personal essays, flash nonfiction, graphic essays, and journal excerpts." Many of the contributors are current students or young alumni at Columbia College; others, including Bret Lott, Sandy Feinstein, and Douglas Haynes, are published writers. Essays are short and vivid, and describe topics like the experience of walking in New York City or vacationing on the Spanish island of Majorca. The magazine also includes photo essays and long interviews with writers about their craft.
