The Honest Pint is a subscription series edited by Matthew Dickman. Each month, subscribers receive a brief prose piece written by a contemporary author that celebrates the work of a poet. Each piece is uniquely designed and printed, and often contains exciting ephemera. Nothing digital about it. The Honest Pint arrives only by mail. This analog-era throwback is all about paper, ink, and a writer's brain, as well as the interplay between good design, text, and image.
This unconventional literary journal takes many shapes: traditional essay, cross-genre experiment, cartoon strip, hand-written note, a brief interview—you name it! The Honest Pint connects a diverse landscape of contemporary writers and thinkers to subscribers through essays, visual art, and various hybrid forms that are casual, unexpected, and delightfully meaningful.
