Back from a bit of vacation and the holidays (while also freaking out about the inaguration), it was a pleasure to get the new issue of Poetry Northwest. A huge shout out to the editors over there as they scrambled to get an ad in for us while we were abroad.
The new issue looks great. It’s the first time, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Alan Chong Lau’s art work in color with his poetry. My favorites in this issue incluce Leah Poole Osowski “Motives Around Human Vacancy” and Mark Wagenaar’s “Landscape Rising from Crow Eyes (Ornithomancy). I like the line in Derek Mong’s “Letter in a Bottle for When the Seas Rise.”
