Speak was a magazine, the old-fashioned kind, with paper and ink and a really expensive print bill. It published long-form interviews, fiction, essays and features on a variety of topics.
It debuted in 1995, and after several inauspicious issues, found its niche as an "uncommercial" glossy. Unlike most titles, its editorial was designed not for advertisers or a narrow demographic, but for people who fancied a thoughtful and provocative read. The magazine ceased publication in 2001.
This site is not utilized to republish material from the printed magazine, but instead serves as something of a behind-the-scenes webzine on the making of Speak. Back issues of Speak are still available. Information is available in the "Back Issues" section of the site.
Thank you to everyone who supported the magazine over the years.
