Hello, and welcome back to a year of Picaroon – and we’re also back to our regular bi-monthly schedule for 2019.
As always, there’s no set theme for our issues, but also as usual, this one does have several poems that find common ground with one another. There are nods to religion, and to misogyny (against it, that is, not for it), memories, and myth – among other things.
CN/TW for sexual assault, harrassment, child abuse, verbal abuse, death. I think that’s everything, but do tread carefully.
Issue #14 features poetry by Sarah Davies, Chuka Susan Chesney, Mary Percy-Burns, Matt Gilbert, Isaac Stovell, Mark Rutter, Meg Gripton-Cooper, Kelli Simpson, Wanda Deglane, Tianna G Hansen, Kristin Garth, Steven Bruce, Maggie Mackay, Michael J. Galko, Yuan Changming, Tristan Moss, Betsy Housten, Gale Acuff, Olivia Tuck, Stephen Daniels, Rose Cook, Al Ortolani, Jeffrey Zable, Ceinwen E Cariad Haydon, Elizabeth York Dickinson, Michael McGill, Bruce McRae, Kenneth Pobo, Megan Denese Mealor, Julia D McGuinness, Sue Spiers, Jackie Biggs, Gareth Writer-Davies, Charley Barnes, and Penny Blackburn.
Lovingly edited by Kate Garrett (with no help at all from the cat, contrary to her being on the masthead).
