Foursquare Editions (labor of love of the lovely Jessica Smith -- say *that* three times fast) announces two new issues. For those of you who have not yet seen, Foursquare is one 8"x8" piece of cardstock on which four female poets per month are given one 4"x4" space each -- just like a foursquare court. The folded document is housed in a fabric sleeve with the name of the magazine embroidered on the front. Issues are "themed" (see below). Each copy is hand-numbered 1-50. Editions are very limited, with overruns available on Etsy.
FOURSQUARE 2.6 Mysteries both complex and ephemeral spun by Megan Kaminski, Jenn McCreary, Michaela Gabriel and Bonnie Roy. Cover art: a photograph found in the possession of Kristianne Meal.
FOURSQUARE 2.7 plays with light, color, and issues of gender and identity. Poems by Ivy Alvarez, Wanda Phipps, Pattie McCarthy and Jo Cook. Cover illustration by Claire Whitehead.
