The Spring 2021 issue of Rattle features a Tribute to Neurodiversity. This issue’s conversation features Michael Mark, who discusses how dyslexia has contributed to his life and work, as well as advertising, ghost stories, Buddhism, and many other topics. The issue includes another exciting and highly-varied open section, presenting poets such as Skye Jackson and Stephen Dunn, covering a wide range of subjects and styles. See what else the issue offers at the Mag Stand.
The March-April 2021 issue of Hippocampus Magazine is now at the Mag Stand, and it’s full of CNF goodness for you, including work by Scott Bane, Paul Crenshaw, Bethany Kaylor, Anya Liftig, Francisco Martinezcuello, Tiffany Mathewson, Sheila Monaghan, Jim Ross, Michelle Strausbaugh, Kareem Tayyar, and Lish Troha. Also in this issue: a book review by Emily Dillon, a craft essay by Michelle Levy, and Robin Wheeler on “Going Mobile.”
The poems inside this issue, now at the Mag Stand, speak to our moment in different and unpredictable ways. Maurice Manning attempts to capture the past; Lauren Slaughter faces mourning head-on; and Ed Falco wonders fitfully about Narcissus. And maybe Narcissus can be a mascot of sorts for this weird moment of ours—how so many of us have stared at our own faces on Zoom and felt paralyzed, perhaps not by self-regard, but by something still inevitably bounded by the self. Hopefully the poems and interviews in this year’s issue of HSPR well help break you out of whatever trance you might be in.
