Redactions Issue 13 Review

Today New Pages released a review of Redactions: Poetry & Poetics issue 13.

New Pages

Redactions Issue 13 CoverNew Pages is a very informative website that is concerned with literature, especially presses and journals. Each month or so they write reviews of a few selected literary journals. They are always reviewing something or posting news about something literary. Today they reviewed the poetry journal I edit, Redactions.

At one point they say:

If you’re looking for smart new poems, you’ll know you’re there when you pick up this issue of Redactions.

They also mention some of the poets in the issue, such as David Wagoner, J.P. Dancing Bear, Gerry LaFemina, Jeanine Hall Gailey, Walter Bargen, Michael Schmeltzer, Nathan McClain, Kathryn Nuernberger, Linda Cooper, and Lucille Lang Day.

The review also says this about the journal:

There is nothing crass or excessively edgy, though poems here tend toward the acerbic and emotionally cautious; and there is nothing overtly sentimental or impossibly innocent.

I’ve often heard similar things said about me. So I guess the journal is a reflection of me and my tastes. I was seriously unaware of this. I thought I was broad, open, and eclectic. It’s especially odd because I had Sarah Freligh as the guest editor. I don’t think I’d say those things about her.

Still, it’s good to hear good things about something you are dedicated to.

Much thanks go to all those who contributed to the issue:

Natalie Young, Lindsey Wallace, David Wagoner, Jerry VanIeperen, Elizabeth Twiddy, Jeff Tigchelaar, Kory M. Shrum, Michael Schmeltzer, Rebecca Givens Rolland, Mark Rice, Barbara Price, Kathryn Nuernberger, Michelle Menting, Michael McLane, Nathan McClain, Robin Linn, Gerry LaFemina, Veronica Kornberg, Nazan Koksal, Liz Kay, Christopher Howell, Gail Hosking, Sean Patrick Hill, Melanie Graham, Jeannine Hall Gailey, Chris Dollard, Jeff Dodd, Lucille Lang Day, J. P. Danicng Bear, Star Coulbrooke, Charlie Coté, Linda Cooper, Walter Bargen, guest editor Sarah Freligh, and Brian Warner for the cover art.
