Happy Fourth! And Some Summer Reading….

There are those who love to celebrate the Fourth of July: picnics, parades, fireworks. And there are those who veer toward quieter pursuits: solo hikes, deserted beaches, a good book.

I can help you with your reading list if you’re in that last category – the summer issue of Gyroscope Review is now available in both print and PDF formats. Click the cover below for more information.


Poets in this issue tackled topics of all sorts, especially current affairs – perfect for your Fourth of July consideration. And if you’re wondering where that cover photo came from, I took it when I visited Berlin in the summer of 2015. That shot is part of the East Side Gallery that covers a section of the Berlin Wall. Find out more about that here. Thanks to my co-editor Constance for choosing that photo to grace our cover.

In addition, submissions are now open at Gyroscope Review. My co-editor Constance Brewer and I strongly encourage any poet who is considering a submission to us to read our back issues, read our guidelines, be thorough. If any of the work we publish offends you in some way, then we may not be a good fit for you. On the other hand, if what we publish makes you think, makes you re-read, prompts you to have a conversation, then we might be just your sort of place.
