19:2 | Open Theme

With an Open Theme issue we offer a variety in form and feeling. Each poem is linked by proximity and intuition in this beautifully balanced issue. This collection of poems conjures the smell of fresh-mown hay and the sensation of finding old photographs of someone you haven’t seen in a while. These poets are speaking and listening, minds open and senses attuned.Β Β 

Featuring new poems by Lambda Literary fellow Nora Hikari, Terry Watada, Evan J, and more. Plus, an excerpt from George Elliott Clarke’s War Canticles, as well as a preview of our 2022 Chapbook Award winner. Rosie Long Decter interviews Frankie Barnet on her debut graphic novel.
