Li-Young Lee, the judge of The MacGuffin’s 21st Poet Hunt contest, is featured in the latest issue of The MacGuffin. Lee’s three-poem spotlight serves as an island in the midst of the ocean of nonfiction we’ve included. Read about Erin Callister’s ever-evolving relationship with jasmine and take in John P. Kristofco’s account of a parking lot panhandler. Of course, our usual curation of poetry, such as Destiny Dorozan’s “Ode to Tools,” and fiction, such as William Jay Weissinger’s “The Good Boy,” can also be found, this time enveloped in the vibrant cover art of G. Davis Cathcart.

Featuring essays and talks from “Forty Years After: Chinua Achebe and Africa in the Global Imagination,” with work by Johnnetta Cole, Caryl Phillips, Maaza Mengiste, Chinelo Okparanta, Okey Ndibe, and others.

This issue showcases new work by such poets as Jaydn DeWald, Lindsay Tigue, Jason Tandon, and Frannie Lindsay. In our prose section, Leslie Ullman explores how speculative gestures (questioning, openness) include readers in a poem’s act of discovery; Tony Hoagland bears witness to the deep humanity of Alicia Ostriker’s voice; and Sandra Gilbert and Sunil Freeman place new books by long-established poets in literary context. Plus, in keeping with Poet Lore’s historical commitment to world poetry, we’re proud to present work by Uruguay’s Idea Vilariño (1920-2009), introduced and translated by Jesse Lee Kercheval.

Read this dreamy-themey issue featuring Kailey Tedesco, Carla M. Cherry, Catfish McDaris, Robert Lee Kendrick, Reese Conner, Candace Howze, Tristan Silverman, Alison Liu (our contest winner!), Sandy Beaches, and Lauren Spinabelli. Just $3, always and forever.
