The final issue of the Aurorean made it to NewPages last week, and we’re sad to see it go. Encircle Publications will continue operation, however, publishing full-length poetry and fiction titles, and curating their annual chapbook contest.
Editor Cynthia Brackett-Vincent opens the issue:
Here we are: the final issue of the Aurorean. It has been my honor to steward this journal for twenty-five years. I have said from day one that without the poets who submitted (entrusted) their work to me, the Aurorean would be nothing but a dream of mine and a bunch of blank pages. It has been a labor of love, and it has become a community of poets worldwide.
Stop by the Aurorean’s website for the full editor’s note, and grab a copy of the final issue at their shop.
