Low Rent was founded with belief that those heavy, incredibly large journals of fiction and poetry were really great, but smaller, sillier-sized journals would be better (and cheaper). Based in Brooklyn, Low Rent’s editors tirelessly attempt to curate collections by new and emerging writers from all over the world. Low Rent can be had for a very small price, a few dollars—as though the recession might always be in style.
Editor Jason Koo introduces poet Leigh Stein.
