E-Interview

Coral Hull

Coral Hull and Thylazine

“I developed an empathy with animals through my own experiences earlier in my life. This empathy brings a vividness or intensity to my experience today. A black cockatoo flying through a rainbow in the tropics can be so intense, that I have to sit down in order to conserve some part of myself in light of it all. The situation seems simple enough at first glance, but the closer you get to that situation the more complex and unknowable it all becomes - from the muscular action of the cockatoo's wing beats during flight, to how the dark breast feather repells water to how all the equatorial light refracts from droplets inside the rainbow.” An e-view with the Australian writer, Coral Hull.

Visuals

Jerusalem Flowers Almond Blossoms “We have roses all year in Jerusalem. They are most prolific in spring, but we even have roses in winter, though far fewer on each bush. The windflowers are often passed by —they grow wild and are quite lovely when they open and their seeds are carried by the wind.” Just in time for spring, a selection of original digital photographs from Reva Sharon, an award-winning Israeli artist and photographer.

Presses

Salmon Publishing
“It was obvious in the early 80s that there were few outlets for women writers, particularly poets, in Ireland. Beaver Row Press in Dublin had begun publishing and had a list of new poets, but the press didn't survive. I made it clear that Salmon would be publishing women poets and began to get a lot of excellent manuscripts... In 1999 we published The White Page/An Bhileog Bhan: 20th Century Irish Women Poets, and I consider this a crowning achievement for Salmon. The White Page is a directory (one poem, a bio, and photograph) of every woman poet who published at least one collection from 1920 to 1999. It lists 113 poets, and is an invaluable reference tool for anyone interested in contemporary Irish literature.”
by Jessie Lendennie

Double Feature:
A simultaneous feature between another publication and The Drunken Boat. Joyce Wilson, our regular columnist, has just interviewed Jessie Lendennie of Salmon Publishing. Visit the interview at The Poetry Porch

We are pleased to announce the latest from Archipelago which includes, among many riches, “a complex literary and historical perspective on Butler's Central European work. . .by Chris Agee, an American poet and writer living in Belfast for the past twenty years. 'The Balkan Butler' offers an overview of Butler's writings about that troubled peninsula where Agee has, himself, visited, and argues that Butler's Balkan writing is central to his oeuvre. 'The Stepinac File' follows up on 'The Sub-Prefectä' in recounting the controversy in Ireland in 1952 over Butler's nuanced exposé of the collusion by Archbishop Stepinac with the Croatian Fascists during the Second World War in the forced conversions of Orthodox Serbs. Because the canonization of Stepinac has begun, this sobering matter is worth a close examination again.” By Katherine McNamara.


Big City Lit
Big City Lit, this professionally edited magazine rolls over into a whole new issue every month with a coherent feature compilation, recurring sections“Big City, Little”, “Bridge City Lit” (Paris, Prague, etc. in French, in Czech, etc.), the hand-picked “12” section, “Fiction”, “Other Arts”, “Free Expression” (First Amendment and other political issues), “Legal Forum” and othersóplus essays, interviews, reviews, articles, and think pieces. By Maureen Holm


Literary Salt “Regionalism is interesting and has its place, but too often becomes so overbearing that it obliterates the larger world view. The editors of Literary Salt look for work that reflects this greater community. Even though each of us lives and works in the Pacific Northwest, we do not expect to publish only Northwest poetry, prose, or visual art. We aim to reflect the world, not simply one small partitioned component of it.”
by Pamela Moore Dione


Transference coverTransference is believed to be the sine qua non of psychoanalysis. But I think that also in poetry and literary matters interpretation of the stimuli behind the process of transference is of major importance.”

Editor's Pick

We are pleased to present an outstanding selection of Canadian poetry. A dozen poets (a baker's dozen, if one adds Rochelle Mass, now living in Israel) show the vitality of Canadian poetry. George Murray who joins the Drunken Boat as a Contributing Editor and who is himself one of Canada's most promising young poets has put together this feature to introduce us to the riches of the north, but he has done more than that, for this is finally and foremost, just wonderful stuff!

An exceptional second collection by George Murray.
