Publisher’s Description: Green Mountains Review, now in its 24th year, is an award-winning journal of international scope. Our work appears regularly in Best American Poetry and Pushcart Prize anthologies as well as online in Verse Daily and Poetry Daily.
GMR’s special issues include one featuring Vermont state poet Galway Kinnell as well as various multicultural issues: one showcasing Pulitzer Prize winning Caribbean poet Derek Walcott, two devoted to contemporary Chinese and Japanese writers, and a fourth presenting new multicultural writing in America. Another all-fiction issue, “Women, Community and Narrative Voice,” features an interview with short story writer Grace Paley. A special issue devoted to literary ethnography, “Conjuring the Other,” includes an interview with Howard Norman.
Our 10th anniversary double-issue, “American Poetry at the End of the Millennium,” compiles essays and poetry by Mark Doty, Albert Goldbarth, Michael Harper, Yusef Komunyaaka, Maxine Kumin, Heather McHugh, William Matthews, Mary Oliver, Alicia Ostriker, Gary Soto, and James Tate, among others. Our 15th anniversary double-issue celebrates the renaissance of comedic verse in contemporary poetry, including such writers as Julia Alvarez, John Ashbery, Billy Collins, Russell Edson, Bob Hicok, and Dean Young. Our 20th anniversary issue double-issue, Literature of the American Apocalypse, represents the work of over eighty writers, including Ellen Bass, Christopher Buckley, Tracy Daugherty, Denise Duhamel, B.H. Fairchild, Brian Henry, Bob Hicok, H.L. Hix, T.M. McNally, Benjamin Percy, Reginald Shepherd, Betsy Sholl, Alexander Theroux, Charles Harper Webb, and Walter Wetherell. This issue includes poems and prose, darkly comic or deadly serious, that center on American dread, inspired by everything from the Bush Administration’s war on terror and war on privacy, to continuing threats of environmental degradation, nuclear annihilation, world-ravaging disease, or whatever else can be imagined by an end-of-days mind.
The spring 2013 issue is packed with nearly 250 pages of poetry, essays, fiction, and art. The issue features 14 new poems and a craft essay by Tony Hoagland, as well as eight full-color collages (and two stories) by West Coast art and design icon Lou Beach. Then there's the writing itself--by Julianna Baggott, Elizabeth Bradfield, Weston Cutter, Luke B. Goebel, Albert Goldbarth, Sarah Rose Etter, Brian Evenson, Mark Halliday, Kenneth Hart, Sasha West, and many more!
