Inaugural Issue #001 Out Now!!

       We are proud to announce the release of our inaugural issue, #001! In this issue we have managed to publish writers of many different backgrounds who represent a broad survey in the literary world as it is today. From emergent to well established, the writers published here represent a sweeping array of contemporary poetry and prose in the anglophone world. We selected from an astonishing pool of submissions, and our publication is comprised of writers from all backgrounds. Our youngest writer has just finished high school, and our oldest is in retirement. We have poets from four continents, some of whom are writing with English as a second or third language. Poets and writers in our publication come from both traditional academic schools and non-academic or even autodidactic backgrounds. Around 40% of our writers are women, and we have writers who are veterans, and some who identify as LGTBQ+. Finally, we have several authors whose publication with us is their first ever! We hope you find as much joy in these pages as we found in publishing them.
