In the ever popular category of rare and elusive beasts, I have some of my own work to point out today.
Stone Telling 11: Reverberations is out, and it contains my poem “No Fixed Points in Space,” alongside an audio recording I did of the piece (for those of you who are interested to hear what I sound like).
That entire issue is composed of poets who’ve not published with the magazine before, and in some cases poets for whom this is their first publication. Which is surprising to me because the level of skill on display in that issue is extremely impressive.
There are some things that I’m finding immediately stand out for me, for a variety of reasons. Among them Nelly Geraldine García-Rosas’s reading of her “Coyolxauhqui” (which is just absolutely captivating), Ruth Jenkins’s “Scales” (which looks like it may have been put together as a Twine build, but is in any case a form of hypertext poetry and is meant to be re-read multiple times to get the full experience), and M. Sereno’s “The Exile, i.” whose rhythm is an undertow, inescapable and glorious.
But, really, read that whole issue. I love reading through a new issue of Stone Telling and this one is no exception.
Incidentally, for those who are not familiar with Stone Telling, or perhaps even those who are, they operate on a donation basis and are currently partaking of a Patreon, so by all means feel free to support them. They do exceptional work.
