Poets and their owls.

Here's John Minczeski posing with BOR #3 during his visit to Akron. We'd love to post more pictures of our contributors and their owls. Email a pic to Mary, and we will put it on the blog to share the joy of the new issue.

We start taking submissions for BOR #4 on June first. Hooray!

Thank you, Denver.

Thanks so much to all who stopped by the BOR table at AWP. We sold out of the issues we brought, but have plenty more here at home. Contributor copies and orders will be going out within the next 1-2 weeks. I'm sure we'll share a shot of our envelope-stuffing extravaganza.

The BOR website is undergoing some changes (still in progress), with new photos by yours truly. We also hope to have some new book reviews up soon.

Submissions for BOR 4 begin June 1st. Duotrope has our new cover up, and everything. It's a happy day in owlville, and it wouldn't be the same without you. Lots of love from sunny Akron!
