  • Introducing Issue 1!

    After several years of publishing in a fluid, blog-roll format, we have switched to a serial format and re-built our home on the web. Issue 1 contributors include Kim Addonizio, Ann Lauterbach, D.A. Powell, Nick Flynn, Bianca Stone, Robert Pinsky, and many other wonderful writers and artists. Each adds his or her own brand of magic to our virtual pages. Many thanks to all of them for having faith in us. And welcome, readers—we hope you enjoy the issue!

    This special folio contains recent poems by Addonizio, woodcuts by Jones (produced in collaboration with Addonizio), and an interview with both writer and artist.
    Bianca Stone Art
    New comics from the poet and artist whose book, Someone Else's Wedding Vows, (Tin House/Octopus Books), has been getting great reviews this year.
    Bianca Stone Art
    The entire poem, online for the first time. Read the work that the National Book Award selection panel called "a high philosophical inquiry that’s mobile, capacious, and tender, veering from sibylline to ingénue’s pathos."
    Nick Flynn Art
    New poems from the author whose books include The Reenactments: A Memoir (Norton, 2013) and The Captain Asks for a Show of Hands (Graywolf, 2011).
    Blurby Statue
