I am so happy to report some really wonderful news. Library Journal, in its May 1 issue, has named Assaracus as one of its best new magazines of 2011. A HUGE congrats to publisher and poet Bryan Borland. Wow! What an achievement! I am honored to be a subscriber and contributor (issue 1).
Bryan writes, in an email to contributors, “This is monumental for Assaracus, for Sibling Rivalry Press, and for gay poetry, however you define it, in that it’s mainstream recognition and will serve to get Assaracus into more hands that need it (we’re listed alongside publications like HGTV magazine – and many libraries subscribe based on this list). This means more exposure for you – as poets – and for us as a community and brotherhood of writers.”
