blue fifth review

The Winter 2008 issue of Sam Rasnake’s Blue Fifth Review is out and I have two poems in it, the aid worker and the mango tree. Both are special to me and I’m proud and grateful they have found such a good home. Go read the issue and enjoy the way in which Sam has put together some great pieces — BFR reminds me of what Nate Pritts said yesterday about a manuscript being “a big poem.”

Thanks, Sam!

  1. Congratulations Nic. As soon as I read it, I recognised ‘the mango tree’ as a rewrite of a poem you posted at the PFFA , ( ‘Midday’, posted 10-26-2006.)
    Your revisons are minimal but very effective.
    Good work,

  2. Thanks, David — that’s the one. I’ve been quite stubborn about sticking to it as originally conceived and executed. It’s undergone a number of submission/rejection cycles, which makes me even more grateful for Sam’s eye and endorsement.

  3. Nic, I’m serious. I’m full for April but would love to have poems for summer or fall. The more poets I get to know the better I like it.
