Title: BONED Every Which Way 2016
Editor: Nate Ragolia
Launched in January of 2016, BONED is an online literary collection with a single unifying theme: skeletons.
This theme touches something that’s deeply embedded in all of us: Bones are our past, and also our future. Bones represent death as well as immortality, mixed with regrets about the pleasures and beauty of the flesh.
With 52 original short stories, poems, essays, and scripts by 29 writers, BONED Every Which Way will take you into the depths of horror, to strange futures, through contemplations of the human spirit, and leave you in stitches. In short, there’s something for everyone in BONED.
“We started this project with the ambitious and silly idea that skeletons could inspire an infinite amount of writing. Turns out, it worked even better than we could have imagined. I’ve had the honor of editing deep, introspective poetry, hilarious scripts, and haunting stories. And I found a little inspiration myself.” – Nate Ragolia, editor-in-chief
