Our newest issue, Spring 2010 (Issue 17 #2, for those of you counting at home) launched at AWP to some pretty great feedback at both the cover and the content. We had a blast meeting our contributors and anyone else who was willing to pluck our ducks, so big thanks to everyone who was brave enough to stop by and chat... we are a menacing looking bunch. We'll be updating the website soon, so make sure to keep up with us.

In addition to those, standout poems, fiction, and nonfiction cover a wide range of topics from internet absurdities to family struggles, and even a fairly experimental short fiction piece.
