LUMMOX 7 is Out

Poetry Anthology #7 and Contest
In this issue... First off, I owe a debt of thanks (and a wealth of swag) to the Patrons, without whom it would be very difficult to commit to the 5 months that this project requires! They are   Anonymous, Linda Albertano, Thomas Brod PHD, Georgia Cox, William Craychee, Sue Crisp, John Davis, Liz Jackson, Frank Kearns, Hiram Larew, Lyn Lifshin, Heather Lowe,  Steve & Michael Meloan, and Micheal West.

Next, CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the first Angela Consolo Mankiewicz Poetry Prize: Jeffrey Alifier – FIRST place, Mike Mahoney – SECOND place and Vachine – THIRD place! They all receive a cash prize, plus some cool swag (isn’t being associated with Lummox Press enough?)…

In the beginning, I was worried that there might not be enough content (something I do every year), so I began adding “extras”. But in the end, the old lummox cup is not only overflowing, it’s running hot with excellent poetry (as usual); kudos to all the poets who contributed to this issue! Also included is the ever-expanding micro or flash fiction section with 7 stories by Seven Dhar, Roseanna Frechette, Ken Greenley, Tom Laiches, Felize Zoota-Lucero, Michael Meloan and Lucile Shulklapper. I think the interviews are interesting this time around… my interview with poet, professor, gay historian and rights advocate, Clifton Snider and George Anderson’s interview with Nor-Cal poet, bon-vivant and gad-about-town, Bill Gainer. Both cover a wide range of human experience, and I’m happy to be able to include them! There are several essays on plagiarism, one by the esteemed G. Murray Thomas and one I pulled out of the vault (from the old Lummox Journal – 2005), which is still timely. Norman J. Olson muses on poetry, while Christopher Robin mourns the passage of his good friend, Joe Pachinko. Finally Jay Jones (no relation) writes about Australian poet and artist Billy Jones‘s penchant for illustrating letters with some pretty amazing Outsider drawings. I had the privilege of publishing Billy’s last book, complete with drawings and poesy. Rounding it out are some reviews representing the English speaking world: Australia’s George Anderson (The Mysterious Book of Old Man Poems), England’s Christopher Barnes (The Predicament, and The Non-Herein); Canada’s Katherine Gordon (Life and Death in the Forest of Angels); and America’s Nancy Shiffrin (Canticle of a Bored Hausfrau); Judith Skillman (Orphaned Words) and Stirling Davenport (Tracking the Rabbit). I must applaud the artists who have graced this issue, beginning with the great cover photo by Canadian poet and photobug, Richard M. Grove. Also kudos go out to Steve Dalachinsky, Alexis Fancher, Debbie Okun Hill, Charles and Pam Plymell, Steven Meloan, Jennifer Roskos, Clifton Snider, T. K. Splake, Lynn Tait,

Otolith 50th Issue

by Alberto Vitacchio

The fiftieth issue of Otoliths has just gone live. I'm proud of the achievement, but the credit for the getting here must go to the contributors to the journal, more than a thousand individuals across the issues.

Sadly, some are no longer with us — Robert Gauldie, kari edwards, Marthe Reed, Ira Cohen, Carol Novack, Bob Grumman,  Michelle Greenblatt, Rochelle Ratner, Karl Young, David Mitchell, David Meltzer, Thomas Lowe (Tom) Taylor, Ed Baker, Halvard Johnson, Randall Brock, Christopher Mulrooney, Spencer Selby, Philip Byron Oakes, Jill Chan. So, to honor them & acknowledge their part in this journey over the last 12+ years, I have included in this issue a selection of their works from earlier issues.

In addition to that substantial offering, there's a variety of new work from Andre Bagoo, David Lohrey, Cecelia Chapman, Nicholas Bon, Annabelle Ballard, Kyle Hemmings, Mariana Rodríguez, Gustave Morin, Seth Howard, Raymond Farr, John M. Bennett, Jim Leftwich, Sanjeev Sethi, Michael Minassian, Andrew K. Peterson, Hugh Behm-Steinberg, J.J.
