Very good news for 2024- the birth of The Mackinaw: a journal of prose poetry is scheduled for January 15!
As many of you know, one of my passions is prose poetry. There are only a few journals dedicated to this wonderful form and I have wanted to launch a new one for years. I was afraid to undertake such a large project when I already have my hands full of this amazing Ekphrastic journal and community, along with my own writing, my other work, and a long list of projects and dreams. But it kept coming up inside my mind and heart.
The Mackinaw will not replace or take away from The Ekphrastic Review. Ekphrasis, art history, and this family remain absolutely essential. The new journal will publish every other month and it will only publish prose poetry. It is not an ekphrastic journal, although of course we welcome ekphrastic prose poetry.
The first issue launches on January 15. We have a tremendous lineup of luminaries in prose poetry for our debut edition.
