New Boog City Editors

Hi all,

Just wanted to announce some changes to Team Boog City.

Hope you had a nice long weekend.



Our new small press editor, as of issue 108, is Jackie Clark ( is the author of Aphoria (Brooklyn Arts Press),
and most recently Sympathetic Nervous System(Bloof Books). She is the
editor of Song of the Week for Coldfront Magazine and can be found online

And taking over the printed matter section is Jaclyn Lovell ( is a part-time assistant professor at The New
School, where she received her M.F.A.
Wisconsin-born, she can still catch frogs with her bare hands and
continues to smile on her subway commute from Brooklyn, her home for the
last seven years.
Before moving to NYC, Jaclyn taught English at an all-boys middle
school in South Korea for two years and at an elementary school in Taiwan
for one year. She remains forever grateful to her Korean and Taiwanese
colleagues for embracing her as family and for educating her on how to
scaffold and develop a lesson plan.
When she is not writing about the relationship between princesses and
hunting, or the storing of trauma in limbs, she’s officiating weddings for
close friends and family. On Tuesdays you can find her singing in a
community chorus and on Sundays crushing it in a Brooklyn bocce league.
Editor in Chief at LIT from 2009-2014, she’s thrilled to be back on the
editing scene and working with the good people at Boog City!

And our new music editor Brookes McKenzie ( was born and
raised in NYC and has been writing and singing her entire life. She has
been part of the open mic/antifolk scene since 2010. Her favorite mics are
the Sidewalk Open Stage and the Mic Downstairs at Under St. Marks. You can
read her poems at and hear her music at

Much thanks to the folks they’ll be taking over from, small press editor
Joe Pan, printed matter editor Mark Gurarie, and music editor Jesse
