Ouroboros Review Issue One


I am thrilled to be among so many wonderful poets and artists in the inaugural issue of Ouroboros Review, which launched today online. Editors Jo Hemmant and Christine Swint have done a beautiful job and the new open publication program they use (which MiPO has also adopted) from Issuu makes reading the magazine online a breeze. You can "flip" through pages, enlarge them, move around the pages -- all with the click of a mouse. As a matter of fact, you can start reading the issue above. Impressive stuff! I have three new poems in the issue: "Augusta Orchid Club," "Velocity" and "Club Amnesia." There is work included by friends like Karen Head, Julie Bloemeke, Justin Evans, Bob Wood and many more.

This is how I've envisions online publications looking for 10 years. It's such a pleasure to read online work when it's presented in this manner.

I'm guessing Club Amnesia is a true story.

Didi translated a ton of old 'MiPo print' journals into this online format. I had to get used to it,but it really does let you see things up close and like a book format. I'm coming back to read this when I feel human again. My endo was yesterday --two hours in the chair and 16 shots to get the tooth dead..and my poor tmj jaws stirred up already by the nerve he cleaned out feel like a boxer's been at me.

I got your tag URL. What a great find:-) The comments by buttonhole were a riot.

Collin, working with you, and all the poet friends you sent our way, has been... well, amazing. I'm so glad to know you, and I'm looking forward to reading more Collin Kelley poems, over my winter break, and in future publications.

Very nice! I like the engine too. I published a print literary magazine for a while some years ago until I sold my publishing company (and then couldn't negotiate affordable bulk printing), so I know what an effort it is to corral writers and artists who pretty much are working for free ;)

I love seeing people trying to create venues for artistic expression, whether it's donating a wall of their business to local muralists, allowing artists to display in public areas they control (I used to do this with my cafes), or devoting part or all of a publication to creative use.

Kudos and good luck with it.
