Hello again! First of all, this update brings poems from Robert Archambeau, Wes Benson, Brooklyn Copeland, S.M. Fattig, Norman Finkelstein, Graham Foust, Logan Fry, Ross Hair, Michael Heller, Matthew Henriksen, Tim Keane, Andrew Lundwall, Christopher Martin, Patrick Morrissey, Peter O’Leary, David Pavelich, Douglas Piccinnini, Pam Rehm, Dan Rosenberg, Moxie Schults, Mark Scroggins, and Mike Sikkema, plus some studio and work notations from Derrick Buisch. It’s a lot of work to take in but you can do it. We believe in you!
In other news, we’ve published three books this year: Peter O’Leary’s Phosphorescence of Thought (which you can read about here), Shannon Tharp’s Vertigo in Spring (which has received nice mention and attention here and here), and Whit Griffin’s A Far-Shining Crystal. You should buy them and make your reading life a better one. Our final book for 2013 is Michael Autrey’s Our Fear, which is now available for pre-order. You should buy that one, too.
