It feels great to be Brutal. December 2017 print issue, Volume 6(2), of themed literary magazine Here Comes Everyone is out, and includes my poem ‘Hostile Designs.’
This Brutal issue, rich in content, carries the works, literary and visual, of fifty nine contributors, whose bios are published online. The issue is well-balanced, wonderfully designed, and with plenty of outstanding pieces. The theme is addressed from a variety of view-points, from design of public places (as in my poem, for example) to violence, to healing and relapse, to mention a few. Interested? Brutal is available for purchase here.
