Back in action with a review of THE BOOK OF DUELS.

What's the best thing about the holiday season? For many of us, it's hiding out with an awesome book.

To help you choose some excellent titles for winter reading, Barn Owl Review will be delivering a bundle of new book reviews. First up, Eric Morris reviews The Book of Duels by Michael Garriga.

What's even better, if you go to this link, you can hear Garriga read from the book.

Happy holidays, and stay tuned.

An interview with poet Shaindel Beers

The editors of Barn Owl Review are super excited to share a new special feature with you: I’ll Love Mountains as Only a Flatlander Can: An Interview with Poet Shaindel Beers.  

It's no secret that we are proud of our Midwestern identity, and we teamed up with some rock star poetry students at The University of Akron to come up with an interview about poetry, place, and social justice. 

Please check it out, and huge thanks to Shaindel for her generous responses. There's a brand new poem, too!

The Owls of August

Yeah, yeah, so it's now officially mid-August. Whatever. We are bringing the heat with reviews of amazing poetry books, such as Sarah Dravec's review of Interrobang by Jessica Piazza. It's pretty clear that we all NEED this book. 

Additional noteworthy tidbits from the staff of Barn Owl Review, Akron's premiere independent, annual poetry magazine:
  • We are taking submissions for BOR 8, through 11/1. All submissions handled through Submittable. BOR 8 will be released at AWP 2015 in Minneapolis.
  • You can get a copy of BOR 7, our current issue, right here. We're a dinky nonprofit, so every issue sold has a huge impact on our future. 
It's almost back to school for many of us editors. But why write syllabi when you can read excellent collections of poetry, right?
