Dear Readers & Achievers,
Happy New Year. And along with a fresh start comes new beginnings and surprises. Just the other day, I stumbled across a lovely poetry book store in the heart of Cambridge, thus the surprising began. On sale for $40 was Next: New Poems, an autographed book of poems by the late Lucille Clifton.
Because the book store sold me the book for $10, I really want to take this time to say: GO SUPPORT INDEPENDENT BOOK STORES! They are the best and care about their readers’ interests.
Aside from my literary adventures seeking poetry books to consume as a substitute for my three meals a day diet, I give you Write From Wrong’s very first issue of the 2012 year.
We have many things in store for our readers this year. For starters, feel free to check out our brand new music section. We have compiled a list of what albums to look out for this year.
We also have some interesting insight on the humanity of poetry in our Reviews section. Our Spotlight on the 826 National program is one you don’t want to miss.
Don’t forget to check out our Pabulous Poetry & Facundity Fiction in this issue.
Like any other literary magazines, we thrive and feed off of the submissions we receive. Help keep us going by submitting your work and passing the word to a friend to submit. We publish the best work we receive and look forward to your submissions.
With that said, I leave you with some wonderful words from Clifton.
“guard your language / what bird remembers / the songs / the miwok sang?”
