Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review Editor Nathaniel Perry invites readers to “imagine pouring yourself a cup of bad coffee out of that carafe on the cover and start reading. The coffee’s probably not very hot, but it will do.” Indeed, the contents of this issue will more than make you forget any bad cup of joe, with works from Ellen Kaufman, John Koethe, Dylan Carpenter, Will Brewbaker, Tao Qian, Jonathan Cannon, Tiffany Hsieh, Michael Dechane, Hilary Sio, Paul Nemser, Brandon Thurman, Valencia Robin, and many more. There is also a yearly feature I love called “4X4” – four contributors answering the same four questions. The questions are long-framed and take up a page, then are followed by responses from Shane McCrae, Lauren Hilger, Michael O’Leary, and Amaranth Borsuk & Terri Witek (who contributed a co-authored piece).
