katrina grace craig lives in Issaquah, Washington with three tattooes, too many plants, one cat, one man and soon, one baby. A two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, she is hoping to write more poems once she is done growing the baby. In co-editor Marek Lugowski's view, katja is the axis mundi of Agnieszka's Dowry -- if katja doesn't love it, it can't possibly get in.

The Animist

The Australian-based literary/cultural ezine The Animist is for all those people who believe that literature and the arts are vitally important to the psychospiritual wellbeing of individuals and societies. We believe that literature, and the appreciation of literature, are major bulwarks against the kinds of mass barbarism and severe forms of subjective alienation which have characterised much twentieth century life. We aim to make 'The Animist' an international meeting point for writers, artists and thinkers. In this sense we embrace the creative and communicative possibilities opened up to artists and thinkers by the new multimedia technologies.

We think walls are good for keeping out the cold and rain. And for displaying some art. They're useless in the creation and propagation of art. We don't care if Language poetry appears next to sonnets, or haiku next to spoken word and workshop poetry beside agit-smut. Our tastes are catholic-even though we're Jews and pagans and Buddhists and libertines and run-of-the-mill Christians. We don't care how art is shaped-round like moon, flat like roadkill, angular like love, twisted like political promises. We hear many voices (even when we're taking our meds) and are guided by whimsy and passion and urgency. We want more. So, who the hell are we?

We will, however, occasionally update with additional works, so keep us bookmarked. Each issue will feature an online chapbook. We'll publish long poetical works and serialize novels. We'll feature selections from one of the many little magazines being published in space and on the ground; suggestions are encouraged.

Bluff Magazine

The Bluffettes (John Kusch, Laurie Hertz, Tim Grair) decided that our hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA) was ready for a polished, professional, high-quality online showcase of local poetry, commentary and art. We were wrong. So instead we started Bluff Magazine. Always smart, usually funny, with something to offend everybody, Bluff Magazine's message is: you're never too old to embarrass your parents.

Did the weasel become a weasel by deciding to suck eggs, or did the act of egg-sucking make the weasel a weasel? Mulling over these kinds of weasel/egg questions is how John Kusch spends his time these days. A former musician, a former gender-bending Skinny Puppy fan, and most recently a former over-eating poet, John is obsessed with the thick, wet line between art, personality and celebrity.

John lives on the east side (note the lower case) of Milwaukee with his computer, some fantastic art, a respectable view, and the pelts of several unfortunate Beanie BabiesT.

Laurie has spent her life surrounded by writers, all of whom told her one of two things: either "You should write that down," or, "Can I use that?" She is now happy to say that she is writing that down, and no, you can't use that. Primarily a visual artist, Laurie knows that all writers are frustrated artists and all artists are frustrated writers. Laurie, however, is done with frustration.

Tim Grair, Poetry Editor

Tim Grair has lived in Wisconsin for most of his life and can't understand how television gets us so wrong. He has no fear of heights, which is a very good thing, since he spends so much of his time on the ceiling of La Cage (2nd and National, Milwaukee), where he has been playing music for the masses for some five years or so.

In his spare time, he is co-host (with the imposing Geo Kiesow) the Milwaukee Poetry Slam at the Y-NOT II (Lyon at Van Buren, Milwaukee).

Cauldron & Net

Cauldron & Net is a bi-annual electonic magazine whose objective is to showcase (a selection of) the wide variety of diverse creative voices which may be encountered on the WWW, inclusive of both web specific and non- web specific work. We seek to publish these works in an immersive atmosphere which is highly visual and attempts to orchestrate each issue as a composition in itself, one which is formed of and in-formed by the inter-play and richness evoked by the multiplicity of this gathering.

The myriad branches of the arts are expanding greatly via the web, both in terms of new forms of expression (hypertext/hypermedia), and in terms of the accessability for a great many different people. The web is a global feast, and our goal is to offer a choice taste of this richness.

Jack Kimball travels between New York and Japan. The aesthetic impulse behind The East Village is analogous to aspects of his own poetry, mergings of "indirection" and other practices commonly categorized as East Asian with performative and languaging strategies more typical of postnarrative, contemporary verse in English-language cultures.

A "breezy bomb" according to Bob Holman, Kimball's poetry is described by Kent Johnson as a "careful and serious working through and arrangement of materials." "I can really see/feel insight at work," Lissa Wolsak writes. Recent books by Kimball include _Witness Protection_, a collaboration with Peter Ganick, and _Quite Vacation_.

The Salt River Review was founded in the fall of 1997, and is still in the process of finding its "ideal" format. SRR publishes poetry, mainly, but has published fiction and reviews. It has published many poets who had hitherto published only in print journals, thanks mostly to the contacts and virtual arm-wringing of its editor, James Cervantes, who published the print journal Porch from 1978 - 1981, including a chapbook series and the Inland Boat pamphlet series. SRR will sacrifice length and byte count in favor of quality and is constantly on the lookout for exceptional poetry, fiction, reviews and creative non-fiction.

Terrain: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments

Terrain: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments is a quarterly online journal without definite boundaries, searching for that interface--the integration--among the built and natural environments, that might be called the soul of place. It is not definitely about urban form, nor solely about natural landscapes. It is not precisely about human culture, nor necessarily about ecology. It is, rather, a celebration of the symbiosis between the built and natural environments where it exists, and an examination and discourse where it does not.

Terrain, in partnership with the MIT Press's Terra Nova: Nature & Culture, includes editorials, poetry, essays, fiction, articles, artwork (ARTerrain gallery), case studies (UnSprawl), reviews, and more in each theme-based issue. Recent and upcoming themes include Indigenous America, Atmosphere and Beyond, The City Wild, and The Mountain's Range.

SWAA serves to network all artists of the region to create a greater appreciation for all the humanities and to celebrate, in particular, the state's finest professional poets and authors. New Jersey has been home to some of the finest poets of our times, ie. Walt Whitman in his Camden years; Allen Ginsberg in his Paterson years; William Carlos Williams in his Rutherford home; Alicia Ostriker of the Princeton area and Stephen Dunn of the Stockton area, just to name a few. The Waterloo National Poetry Festival takes place, bi-annually, in the Skylands Region and was the basis of "The Language of Life" poetry series on PBS, hosted by Bill Moyers. We have a live reading series titled CELEBRATING LITERARY NJ at Centenary College in which Stephen Dunn, Alicia Ostriker, Yictove and many other poets and fiction writers have read. A calendar of current events is available at the site.
