We are excited to share our first online issue with you! The issue features Cynthia Neely, this year’s winner of our Hazel Lipa Chapbook Conest.
“In Broken Water, Cynthia Neely begins with ancestry and ends with loss, but what persists, what weaves itself through all of these poems is wildness. This collection makes the lyrical case for sustenance in nature. Even the greatest suffering is not too much for the world of bird and wolf, seal and wave. If we can draw our gaze up from a ground littered with shotgun shells, we might catch a glimpse of “the meadowlark, bibbed and shining.”
–Derek Sheffield, winner of the inaugural Hazel Lipa Chapbook Award for A Revised Account of the West (2008)
