L'Éphémère Review


A bi-monthly online literary and art journal for the ephemeral and eternal

 

WELCOME TO THE TRANSITORY

This is a place for writers, poets, and artists alike. A place to be inspired and to inspire. A place where our words are fleeting but our impact eternal. We each have but a silver of time in the grand scheme of the world, so let's support one another on our journeys through life in our words and art.

L'Éphémère Review aims to shine light on the short-lived, the fleeting, the ephemeral, and the infinite. We want work that aches and sings and cries. Work that changes what we believe and how we see the familiar and the strange. Work that will make our time here softer, grander, and better. A small slice of the universe, offered with a side of starlight and open palms. 

Thank you for visiting, no matter how brief or long. 
Welcome to our small corner of time.

FEATURED CONTRIBUTOR
"WHEN THE BEAUTIFUL BECOMES BRUTAL: BREASTFEEDING AFTER SEXUAL ABUSE"
BY ALEXA DORAN

“we have been fighting for centuries to take part in this ethereal and healthy exchange without shame—but sometimes I feel like we are skimming the cream off the top without acknowledging all that lurks beneath.”

Contributor Alexa Doran discusses the difficulties of breastfeeding after sexual trauma and changing the conversation around breastfeeding for the good of both mother and child. 


ON THE BLOG
"IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, THE SUN SHINES BRIGHTLY,"
by INGRID CALDERON

"Paints can’t duplicate the colors that center in your eyes at twilight. The moment is yours and you want to weep, and so you do. You’re swimming, you’re free, and have finally caught a glimpse outside that nebulous veil, and your heart rests calmly in your ribcage."

Ingrid Calderon muses on the concept of "Yugen," insights from her childhood, and how we position ourselves in the now, then, and meaningful nothingness. 


SURVIVAL AND ANXIOUS MORTALITY IN THE TORNADO IS THE WORLD

"...the author invites the reader to continue reading in search of answers. However, answers remain hard-won, as other fears such as physical illness and depression creep into the narrator’s world."

Amy Lauren reviews Catherine Pierce's third poetry collection The Tornado Is the World (Saturnalia Books, 2016).
