It’s almost time for Issue 2 to go live…we’ve received WONDERFUL work so far…Thanks to everyone who has already submitted…we’re still reading, so if you have any last minute poems, stories, reviews or essays to send our way…please do so.
If you have something that:
Speaks to “things in nature that engender an awful quiet in the heart of man (N. Scott Momaday).”
Or if you simply want us to feel what you felt, to know “why story-truth is truer sometimes than happening-truth (Tim O’Brien).”
Whatever your reasons, we love a good read.
Check out a new anthology coming out in September—Beauty is a Verb is the first of its kind: a high-quality anthology of poetry by American poets with physical disabilities. Poems and essays alike consider how poetry, coupled with the experience of disability, speaks to the poetics of each poet included. Click on the link above to read more.

Read the beautiful poem of longing co-authored by John Chavez & Crystal Gibbins in Issue 1 where pictures are “living artifacts” & “absence is the weight of memories gathering” and we’re made to wonder just “how much can the mind hold.”
Thank you, Crystal & John, for the lovely poem.
