Issue 7 is dedicated to the polemic, and sports a killer editorial by Rippeon followed by a shitload of heavy-hitters: Rich Owens (19 pages!), Craig Dworkin, Julia Bloch (22 pages!), Janet Neigh, Jimbo Blachly & Lytle Shaw, Duriel E. Harris, Dawn Lundy Martin, Ronaldo V. Wilson, Steve Zultanski, Bhanu Kapil, Robert Fitterman, Patrick Durgin, Alessandro Porco, Craig Santos Perez, Vanessa Place, and Sarah Dowling.
This mag along with, say, Damn the Caesers, Try!, and very few others continue to renew my faith in the magazine as a critical ecology showcasing a very particular conversation between very specific poets, rather than the more generic model of featuring a stand-alone one night stand by hundreds of poets. Young, aspiring editors take note...A must for folks interested in small press culture.
