Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 28
This summer issue enters at the threshold of fall, full of wounds, love,
and the multiple forms of memory. Scars, murders, disappearances. The unfamiliar ends of fairy tales.
Stones descending through the air. And more.
First book poets Laura Cherry and Linda Dove provide us another engaging conversation, while Stephen O'Connor reviews Barbara Blatner's The Still Position and Joy Sullivan explores Erica Miriam Fabri's first book, Dialect of a Skirt We also are pleased to feature artwork from Elaine Wang, whose paintings accompany this issue's poetry. Elaine will also be joining us as our new art editor (submissions are now open on Submishmash).
