Issue 12 is ready for your dollars!

First, let’s announce the winners of Issue 12’s contest, shall we?




Lee Todd Lacks and John Hanson!

Specifically, Lee won for poetry with “Durgin-Park” and John for his story “Portrait of Jan and Ola in Berlin.” Their issues will have an extra 20 bucks inside.

So who else made it? How about Terry Allen, TJ Beitelman, Ashley Hutson, A.A. Kostas, Rachna Kulshrestha, Doug Mathewson, and Russell Thorburn? Russell was a poet laureate for Christ’s sake, and he didn’t even win the contest.

Next, here’s the cover for Issue 12:
