Top Stories
Location: New York, NY
Founded and edited by Anne Turyn, Top Stories was a prose periodical dedicated to the fiction writing of emerging women artists and writers in the late seventies. First printed in 1979, every contributor was designated a full issue to create and shape as their own, sometimes in collaboration with a visual artist. As a result, much of the writing is experimental and ranges completely in style of prose and topic, making for a diverse record of New York fiction at the time. The series featured numerous luminaries of the NYC downtown ethos, including Jenny Holzer, Lynne Tillman, Laurie Anderson, and Kathy Acker.
