    1. Hi C,
      The issue as a whole will not be in print, but selected pieces from the issue will appear in our 3rd annual print anthology next summer (2017).

  1. I read your poem on Visceral Uterus just now. The only thing that disgusted me was the reference to the dog hair beneath your nails, or something in that vein. Not that it’s gross – shit, that’s my own trip (that I don’t dig dogs).

    I’m just saying the poem was good – in a beautifully primal sort of way, which I hope is what you were shooting for. If not, well, how’s this – I thought the thing was just lovely and danced with the stars.

    I haven’t checked your site out fully yet, as I just came across it via a google search after reading your poem a few minutes ago, but, if you accept submissions, I’ll probably shoot one your way at some point.

    Scott Thomas Outlar
