The Year 2011 (So Far…)
Our year began with a very special First Anniversary Issue featuring commissioned work from some of our favorite contributors from 2011: Mark Yakich, Craig Santos Perez, Kelli Anne Noftle, and Dan Beachy-Quick.
The year also featured our first translation contribution, from the Chinese poet Yang Zi translated by Ye Chun, Melissa Tuckey, and Fiona Sze-Lorrain.
The spring also saw the release of Chapvelope Two, featuring work by Gillian Conoley, Emily Motzkus, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, and Halsey Chait. Selections from Gillian Conoley and Joshua Marie Wilkinson also could be found in issues dedicated to each of their writing.
And then there were all the other delightful, challenging, and rewarding contributions that peopled each week’s issue, including work by Marthe Reed, Cassandra Smith, Rebecca Lindenberg, Keetje Kuipers, Mark Irwin, Randall Horton, and Saba Razvi among many other contributions.
The above is a haphazard overview of what we have done so far this year. We hope that you enjoy the above and have enjoyed this year so far (as well as some highlights from our 2010 contributions). We will see you again Monday, August 1 with new writing from Shamala Gallagher, and an interview with and essay from Mark Irwin.
