  5. Donya

    Wow! That E.L. Hopkins is a weirdo! Does E.L have a book?

  6. MuchlyMary

    SO happy that this town is getting its shit together. There is so much going on that doesn’t get its props. Well done! Looking forward to the next issue.

    Do yourself a favor and support your local. It’s good to see that old pdx spirit is still alive in the tidal wave of new comers who may not know the history and spirit of pdx.

  8. EspisitaCompleta

    Whoa! Seldom is there such a complete literary journal, with so many angles and avenues converging and branching, with a bunch of art that match the stories/poems. This is how a lit mag should look like: It needs to reflect the times. Sadly, most literary journals reflect their navels.

    Yo! Whens the next issue?
