Good-byes for the Aurorean

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.
