Volume 8 Issue 2 Is Here!

posted Jan 22, 2010, 11:46 AM by Anna Evans
The new issue of The Raintown Review is out, with poems by Ned Balbo, Paul Bone, Greg Alan Brownderville, Michael Cantor, Jehanne Dubrow, Maureen Gallagher, Kevin Higgins, Rose Kelleher, Rick Mullin, Timothy Murphy, Aaron Poochigian, Deborah Tyler-Bennett, and others. We have incisive book reviews by Nick Friedman, Fintan O’Higgins, and Aifric Mac Aodha. Editor Anna Evans surveys the general run of metrical poetry-oriented magazines (we come out looking well, strangely enough), while Associate Editor Quincy R. Lehr is on a tear about something or other in an essay entitled “Down with ‘Good Poetry!’” (Just read it; the title makes sense in context.) In short, you are going to love it! (Contributors and subscribers should start receiving copies within a week or so.)

Speaking of which, if you haven’t yet, or haven’t recently, think about subscribing. Yeah, yeah, we know that there are a gazillion magazines out there asking for your hard-earned cash. But The Raintown Review is "essential reading for the formal poetry community" or so it says in Anna's essay...

And that means YOU!

(Selected poems and prose from the new issue will be uploaded to the website over the next view weeks as time permits.)
