Rascal: Issue 1 Live

Dear Friends,

After decades of dreaming, years of planning, months of cultivating and hundreds of hours of work, issue one of Rascal: a journal of ecology, literature and art, edited by yours truly, has been published and is freely available in a variety of formats, including multiple online layouts, downloadable e-books, and two audio versions for the visually impaired:

The issue features a stellar lineup, including world-class poets Keith and Rosmarie WaldropClayton EshlemanGiles GoodlandBarbara Henning and Sheila Black, alongside an impressive array of emerging talent in poetry, nonfiction, photography and art.
Our overall aesthetic is health, a key aspect of which is diversity, so you’ll find strains of the mainstream, experimental, streetwalking and other tacks, including traditional lyrics, centos, prose poems, transcendent crystallizations, lexicographic complexities, even a Timothy Morton erasure. You can also hear every poem and essay read aloud, in most cases by the poet or author. And the art, well, here’s a sneak peek:

Hope you enjoy the eye and ear candy as much as I did putting it together. We’re now reading for issue 2, scheduled for release on the winter solstice.
Thanks, and take care,
Ricky Ray
Founding Editor, Rascal
