    Last February, Astra Publishing House announced their new literary magazine, Astra Magazine, billed as “the international magazine of literature.” Helmed by Nadja Spiegelman, former online editor of The Paris Review and author of I’m Supposed to Protect You from All This, Astra Magazine is launching April 12 with an “ecstasy”-themed issue—and they’ve just released the beautiful cover, as well as a partial list of contributors.

    Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

    Jos Charles, Don Mee Choi, Forough Farrokhzad, Terrence Hayes, Sophie Hughes, Leslie Jamison, Mieko Kawakami (!!), Kim Hyesoon, Catherine Lacey, Ada Limón, Fernanda Melchor, Ottessa Moshfegh, Sayaka Murata, Dorthe Nors, Chinelo Okparanta, Margaret Ross, Solmaz Sharif, Katharina Volckmer, Kate Zambreno—I can’t wait to see the “and more.”
