Submissions
Along with assistant editors Paul Cunningham and Nichole Riggs, we were delighted, surprised, exhilarated, challenged and somewhat disturbed by the submissions we received for our open reading period. It seems clear that something exciting, multiform, tentacular, muscular, gargantuan, frayed and strange is going on beneath the smooth skirts of prize-winning US verse culture! We are delighted to be one of its many terrible nodes.

We are very grateful to all who submitted.

The following six manuscripts from our open reading period will be published over the next two years:

Scolopendrum by Purdey Lord Kreiden
becoming the virgin by Taylor Jacob Pate
Prosopopoeia by Farid Tali trans. Aditi Machado
efg (exchange following and gene flow) by Valerie Hsiung
