Seeking writing that resists simple classification and easy escape, writing greater on the inside and than the sum of its parts.
Good new poetry in here, guaranteed.
The work included shows an editorial eye for quality and imagination, indicative of a careful approach to looking for the best of what's out there. This is achieved without being flashy or showy, but with a quiet nerve and determination. There is a terrific range of styles and approaches from gritty and real, to experimental. If you haven't heard of HVTN, you will very soon.
