Expanded Horizons has published a lot of interesting short work that I've previously enjoyed, and their explicit pro-diversity mission makes me love them all the more. I'm really glad to be a part of this issue, alongside folks like An Owomoyela.

30. ^The Poetry Handbook^ by Mary Oliver
I haven't read enough craft books on the poetry end of the spectrum, so I thought I'd pick up one that I've heard a lot about. I did enjoy reading Oliver's text; the detailed attention to the sounds of words, and rhythms, and the mechanical aspects of a poem that bring together the whole as a piece of art--that's the sort of thing that I love. Mechanics might not be sexy to everyone, but I enjoy picking at how it is we do what we do.
