The great heron delivers Issue 7.1 — Rough Material, December 2018.

 

A celebration of the fundamental (but often hidden) process of writing and art creation—drafts. Especially the abandoned drafts that never went anywhere . . . or so you thought.

 

In this issue, artists and poets were paired with one another to realize the potential of the unfinished. Our poets worked in poetry, prose, ink, audio, diagrams, and predictive text apps, and their "completions"—now published in this issue—beg the question: when and what is "complete"?

 

Featuring a balcony in Amsterdam, insomniac images, poetry written by cellphones, copulatives, and other such poetic foreplay.

 

Thank you fabulous contributors, whom we appreciate dearly and love forever!
