Themes

Choosing a topic to write about can be daunting, so to help provide a jumping off point, we’ll offer a rotating selection of themes each month. These may also include specific verse forms, experiments or collaborative exercises. Submissions outside of these themes are of course always welcome. To suggest a theme, email us at kawsmouth(at)gmail.com
