Poetry. Fiction. Magazine. The ninth edition of this highly esteemed journal of experimental poetry and poetics focuses on "Dialogues." While CHAIN has always encouraged the "dialogue" inherent in cross-genre work and collaboration, issue #9 makes that interest overt, with both fascinating and radical results. Includes dialogues between Bruce Andrews & Alani Apio, Tom Devaney & Edwin Torres, Peter Gizzi & Elizabeth Willis, Craigie Horsfield & Cecilia Vicuna, Reynaldo Jimenez & Jussara Salazar, Bob Perelman & Francie Shaw, Nick Piombino & Barrett Watten, and many, many others. An essential journal for anyone interested in contemporary innovative writing.
