What do you think of the challenge(s) of the triptych?

I love new forms. While poets have a host of them hanging in their poetical closets, prose artists aren’t often given new ways to dress up and play. We should be.


Congrats to Christopher Allen for having a work from HOUSEHOLD TOXINS being chosen to appear in BSF 2019 from Sonder Press.

Check out the write-up of the journal in The Writer.

New titles available from Robert McBrearty and Tori Bond.
