Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 26
Endings and beginnings. Angels and sparrows. Fathers, fields, trains. The bodies of lovers. We close 2010 and open 2011 with
an exceptional array of poems which announce and recall, binding moments and memories together.
This issue features a wonderful conversation between Kara Candito and Kristina Marie Darling, as well as a great interview with Candace Pearson conducted by Lynne Thompson. Zara Raab also reviews Carrie Shipers' Ordinary Mourning. As we are still waiting to fill our art editor position, this issue's photography comes from editor Neil Aitken.
We are also pleased to announce our 2010 Pushcart Prize nominees.
