It's Here!

In the midst of a freak mid-April thundersnowstorm, the spring issue has finally arrived! It includes, among other things, poems about Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson, an essay that quotes Annie Dillard, and a short story that mentions Wayne Gretzky (written by a Canadian, no less!). The issue also contains our new favorite word: "surplusage." (See if you can find it!) And, Stoneboat 1.2 marks our first foray into the world of black and white art. That's pretty cool, too. What more can you ask for in your friendly neighborhood literary journal? Not much, I say.

If you'd like to obtain a copy of our newest literary marvel, send a check to Signe Jorgenson/Stoneboat, c/o General Studies Division, Lakeland College, PO Box 359, Sheboygan, WI 53082. Cost is $5 for a single issue or $10 for a one-year subscription (two issues, spring and fall).

While you're on a Stoneboat kick, don't forget to check out our website for a full contributor list and featured work from the newest issue.

Lastly, don't forget that we will be holding a reading at Paradigm Coffee & Music (1202 N 8th Street, Sheboygan) on Thursday evening (7:00, April 21) to celebrate the release of the spring issue. Local contributor Ross DeRosier will read his work, and Arizona contributor Erin Wilcox will also be on hand to read. Alaskan contributor Sandra Kleven and California contributor Zack Rogow will be reading via Skype, and your editors and a handful of awesome Sheboygan locals will ghost read a wide variety of work from the new issue. It should be a good time -- assuming, of course, that the snow melts by then.
