Paper Darts in the press...
"The literary magazine combines aesthetic, skill, and a little irreverence to create beautiful volumes full of mixed-media art including writing, photography, and other mediums" ---City Pages
"Paper Darts represents everything that is good and pure about the Twin Cities art scene, and I mean that in the grittiest, sauciest, most titillating way possible...The three editors are like these mythical weird sisters who pluck exciting and divergent work from their surroundings, toss them into a bubbling caldron, and end up with this complex, aromatic ointment even more powerful than its parts."
---Maggie Ryan Sandford, Star Tribune
"I love the look and feel of it, their desire to take risks, have fun, make connections that wouldn't otherwise be made. But most of all I love the passion and vision of the editors, the sense that they are on to something new."
---Jim Moore, Star Tribune
"They want to keep the timeless values of a literary magazine, but make it fresh with humor and high style. There's this mistaken idea out there that something thoughtful and high-quality is mutually exclusive with fun: It's got to have a serious aesthetic and you have to go on MPR and speak seriously about this serious work." ---Dennis Cass, Star Tribune
"The Paper Darts' website is a breezy mix of short stories, poetry, reviews, and eye-popping graphics." ---MPR
"These gals are more interested in contributing to the writing community, to providing additional experiences for writers to get published, to growing the overall atmosphere for magazine publishing." ---Red Sofa Chats
"In the Lit department, the editors have definitely stepped up their game." ---Risky Lengths
"Yes, it’s true the latest issue features a woman on the cover, a tried-and-true tactic to generate sales. But this is no scantily clad “it” girl … it’s a somewhat disturbing (though beautifully rendered) half-human, half-rooster creature".
---Fast Horse Media
"Is it possible to have a crush on a three headed octopus? The answer friends is a resounding YES."
