Hey everyone—It brings me joy beyond telling to announce the existence of AGRICULTURE READER #6, the limited-edition arts & poetry annual that I co-edit with my friend Jeremy Schmall. The magazine is a literary anthology and an art-object. Jeremy and I pick the words out and the look/feel/shape/colors/layout are masterminded by the currency collagist and book artist Mark Wagner and ace designer Amy Mees.
The new issue is a real barn burner--published in dos-a-dos format with custom illustrations by two amazing artists for the A and B sides. Side A is a complete poetry collection, included as part of the issue. Side B is a more traditional anthology featuring new poems by many fine writers, including tumblr’s own Lamb of God, a debut fiction publication, Andri Snaer Magnason poems in translation from the Icelandic, a dash of Emerson, and more.
You can read the full contributor list and see the cover(s) on our snazzy new website, so I hope you’ll take a minute, check us out, re-tumbl, order the issue, whatever else you’re moved to do in re this. (We’ll also be at AWP Seattle this week, if that term happens to mean anything to you.)
