A Note from the Editors

 

A Note from the Editors

We’re proud to bring you the second issue of The Harlequin, which features writing from an exciting and diverse range of voices. Excerpts from Zachary Schomburg’s forthcoming poem, “Agnes the Elephant”, are joined by new verses from award-winning poets A.E. Stallings, Carrie Fountain and Kate Potts. Ron Rash and April Pierce provide two very different stories while, returning to poetry, Patrick Toland addresses unruly truths and David Shook recounts the peculiarities of Mexican alternative medicine with his translated versions of contemporary Nahuatl mnemonics. There is more healing to be found in a new poem by Kimberly Grey, and we continue our interview series by talking to Don Paterson about the avant garde, creative writing schools and his fateful Shakespearean bluff.
We’ve found much to love and admire in the work collected here in Issue 2 of The Harlequin, and we hope that our readers will too.
