Some of you might remember inkscrawl, a magazine of minimalist fantastical poetry launched by Mitchell Hart in 2011. Unfortunately, it closed after just two issues, after having published some wonderful short poetry in such a short period of time. This saddened me; though I rarely write very short poetry, I have been well aware that there is a dearth of markets for it. So after some soul-searching and waiting and more soul-searching, I wrote to Mitchell… and as of today, with Mitchell’s blessing, inkscrawl is alive again. It will edited by Samantha Henderson. The guidelines are here; please send us your stuff for the third issue. Oh, and we raised the payment to $3 from $2, and we are open to all kinds of speculative poetry, including science fiction. (Sam is reading and making decisions; I am publishing).
While I was contemplating reviving inkscrawl, it occurred to me that since I now seem to be publishing two magazines, I might as well launch a micropress. So voila – a micropress: Stone Bird Press! It is so tiny, there is nothing in it. Yet. But there will be a few things there in the upcoming months, and I will let you know when it happens.
