I was thinking about this because a couple of 'zines I follow recently came out with new issues.
The City Poetry. The summer issue, as usual, is gorgeous, with poetry (and art) by the Cleveland poets we're all familiar with.
Goblin Fruit's Spring Issue recently came out. Over the years Amal & Caitlyn have featured several northeastern Ohio poets; this issue has a poem by Mary Turzillo.
And, the summer 2014 issue of Astropoetica just came out, with the art and poetry of the stars. Two of my poems reprinted here, but still, a bittersweet issue, since Emily Gaskin, the editor, says that it will be the final issue. For ten years Astropoetica has been the premier showcase for stellar poetry, and I'll be sad to see it conclude its run.
