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.
Kindle Magazines are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you’re not wirelessly connected.

Day One has an average review rating of 4/5 stars and is available for purchase by the individual issue (currently priced at $1.99 each), or for a yearlong subscription (currently priced at $9.99, or 19 cents per issue).
One Amazon reviewer says:
“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.”
Day One: give yourself or an avid reader you know the gift of weekly literature!
