Conjunctions Issue 71 coverToday we are happy to share news about past contributor Matt Bell. Matt’s short story, “Fur, Bark, Feather, Leaf, Faun,” is upcoming in Conjunctions: 71, A Cabinet of Curiosity. About the issue, the description reads:  “Curiosity in all its guises is the wellspring of revelation. It is a prime mover behind our deeds, good or evil, simple or complicated. While the thirty-one writers gathered here individually explore many of the ways in which curiosity drives and defines us, together they propose that the realms of curiosity are, finally, inexhaustible.”

Conjunctions: 71, A Cabinet of Curiosity is available for preorder through the Bard College here. Shipping will begin by the end of November, 2018.

Our interview with Matt can be read in Issue 18 of Superstition Review.

Contributor Update: Carolyn Guinzio’s Ozark Crows

Ozark Crows by Carolyn Guinzio coverToday are pleased to announce that Ozark Crows by Carolyn Guinzio is available through publisher Spuyten Duyvil.

If you want a preview while you wait, Carolyn contributed four of her wonderful poems in Issue 18 of Superstition Review. Her contributed poems , including “The Frame,” are incorporated into the recently available Ozark Crows collection. The poetry is intertwined with stark silhouettes of crows and branches purposefully placed. It is is here, through these four poems, that you can see why Buzz Spector says, “throughout Ozark Crows, poetic language swoops, glides, dives and ascends. The crows both speak this language and scatter it in flight.”

Carolyn was also featured in our Authors Talk series for the blog. During the talk Carolyn discusses her fascination with crows and shares her process for creating poetry. The discussion includes how “the dark crows reminded her of letters” which lead to the experimentation that contributes to the aesthetic of the collection. If you have not had the chance to view the talk with Carolyn prior, we highly recommend doing so.

Congratulations, Carolyn!
