If anyone needs more encouragement to subscribe to your favorite literary magazines, Rattle’s latest issue to subscribers serves as a reminder.
Included in the package for Issue 53 (which features a tribute to 22 adjunct instructors) is a complimentary copy (regularly $6.00) of the 2016 Rattle Chapbook Prize Winner: 3arabi Song by Zeina Hashem Beck.
From Rattle’s website:
3arabi Song is a song of sorrow and joy, death and dance. Yes there is unrest, war, and displacement in countries like Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Iraq, and Egypt. But there is also survival, music, and love.
Also on the website, find sample poems, including a recording of Zeina Hashem Beck performing a poem with the Fayha Choir. And while you’re there, don’t forget to subscribe to Rattle.
