A Short History of Visionary Tongue
What does the word Visionary
mean to you? It is easy to simply pounce upon the nearest
dictionary to find answers to this question, and still
go away empty handed. The idea behind Visionary
Tongue is simple – to provide a voice for
those who wish to sing, an audience for those who have
a tale to tell.
Established in 1995 by British fantasy
Constantine and Eloise Coquio,
Visionary Tongue grew out of Storm’s involvement
in teaching creative writing classes. Recruiting a number
of professional friends and colleagues, among them Graham
Joyce, Christopher Fowler and
Freda Warrington. Storm wanted to evolve
a regular small press fiction magazine aimed at promoting
and encouraging new talent.
During 1999 VT followed many magazines
in becoming fully online, until 2002 when it changed again
into a printed magazine with online support.
VT is in unique in what it offers the
small press market. Though our team of experienced editors,
accepted material for the magazine is given positive feedback
when needed, in order to bring your work up to a professional
level of publication. Showcased in each issue is what
we see as some of the most evocative and talented people
of the new millennium.
