But wait – that’s not all.
We have two calls for submissions open for our Spring 2018 issue. One is our general submissions category and the other is a themed category in honor of our third anniversary issue. The theme is “threes”. Please follow the links to our submissions system HERE for further information. Both categories will remain open until March 15.
Finally, we extend a warm welcome to our new staff member, assistant editor Joshua A. Colwell. He joins us with plenty of experience working for small publications, an interest in writing, and a keen eye to finding just the kind of poetry we love here at Gyroscope Review: modern verse with plenty of bite. Josh is taking over our Twitter feed, so now’s the time to start following us if you haven’t already. We’re really glad he’s here. You can read more about him in our masthead.
We are pleased to announce that we have assembled all of our 2017 issues of Gyroscope Review in one place.
Wrap This Up: The 2017 Issues is available now on Amazon as either a print version ($20 plus shipping; free shipping with Amazon Prime) or a Kindle version ($9.99).
We are proud of our 2017 contributing poets and hope you want to read them all again in this collection. We are pretty sure this is the best holiday gift ever.
Thank you for reading!
We did it again! Another issue completed and it’s beautiful.
Our cover shot this time is of St. Paul, Minnesota, bathed in hazy golden light late on a September afternoon. Editor Kathleen Cassen Mickelson lives in the Twin Cities and is delighted that co-editor Constance Brewer, who lives in Wyoming, liked the idea of using this image.
More important is what’s inside: 35 poets from a host of places who share images in words, craft reactions to the world as it is right now, remember other places and people, and ponder how life has turned out. These are strong voices and our pages are nearly bursting with their force.
