New poem in the Lumberyard
My poem “Universal Monsters” is in the new issue of The Lumberyard, just out this week. I want you to go buy it–sure, because I’m in it, and because I’m really proud of the poem, but mainly because I think The Lumberyard is an amazing little magazine. It’s edited by Jen Woods, who I know from when we both lived in North Carolina, and produced and constructed by Eric Woods, who runs Firecracker Press in St. Louis and also happens to be Jen’s brother. Firecracker Press is a great little funky press–they print on old movable-type presses by hand, with hand-mixed ink. The result is as much a work of art as a literary magazine. And just check out the chest hair on the Disco cowboy on the cover!
You can read about the new issue here, and you can buy it here. You can hear Jen and Eric talk about their approach to creating The Lumberyard by clicking on the “Stream” button for the June 18th “Literature for the Halibut” show here.
