“I wish we could say / we are making ourselves eternal by making ourselves / forwardable, an afterlife in the cloud” –from “On Receipt of a Dick Pic” by Emilia Phillips–author of Beneath the Ice Fish Like Souls Look Alike, an editors’ selection from the 2014 Frost Place Chapbook Competition–published at Muzzle Magazine.
“I don’t think that there are any problems impervious to literature.” —Dwayne Betts–contributor to ANOTHER AND ANOTHER: An Anthology from the Grind Daily Writing Series–from an interview with Current Affairs editor Nathan J. Robinson.
“I mean, I do value introspection and abstract thought in poetry, but it’s only one element. We also want blood, guts, Cheetos, Chuck Taylors, waiting for the bus, folding your laundry, all of it. A poetry that pretends to be only thoughts in a vacuum is not of much interest to me.” —Elizabeth Scanlon, editor of The American Poetry Review & participant in the Grind Daily Writing Series, featured in the Dear Poetry Editor column at Queen Mobs.
“Why do mosquito bites itch so much?/ Pain is caused by chemical / mechanical changes in tissues.” from “International Pain Report” by Jack Martin, participant in the Grind Daily Writing Series, featured at Diagram.
Congratulations to Dwayne Betts, the 2015 GOLD Winner for Poetry from Foreword Reviews‘ 2015 INDIEFAB Books of the Year!
