About InDigest
InDigest is an online literary magazine and arts blog focused on creating a dialogue between the arts. While published on a quarterly schedule, the blog and podcasts are updated daily. InDigest recognizes that art does not take place in a vacuum and that categories are meaningless. We are interested in work that cannot be classified by genre, in good story-telling in all forms, and in artists whose curiosity drives them to push beyond the conventions of their media. Series on the blog include The Lyric Sheet, which features the written art of lyrics by presenting lyrics to songs that aren't yet released and has featured artists such as Beirut, Sharon van Etten, Richard Buckner, and more; InDialogue, a series that pairs artists working in different media for a discussion of process and their work; a recording journal series that has featured The Antlers, Franz Nicolay, Dark Dark Dark, and more; a Poem of the Day podcast; the InDefinite Podcast; There is No Fork, where Joe Owens explores the intersection of art and science; among many others. Founded in St. Paul, the InDigest Offices current reside in Astoria, NY.
