Editor's Corner | Winter 2016
Shloka Shankar is a freelance writer from India. She loves experimenting with Japanese short-forms such as haiku and haibun, as well as found/remixed poetry from time to time. Her work has most recently appeared in Silver Birch Press, Otoliths, shufPoetry, Sein und Werden, One Sentence Poems, and so on. She is also the founding editor of the literary & arts journal, Sonic Boom.
After all this time, we are happy to release an expansive issue for our one year anniversary!
This installment features poetry that plays with traditional forms, a variety of artwork, and fiction that blurs the lines of reality. We are also excited to include (for the first time!) found poetry and original translations of Argentinean poets by a returning contributor. Enjoy the unexpected ekphrasis formed as art pieces converse with literary works on the pages they share.
Here, we explore themes of destruction and undoing. And like discounted post-Valentine's candy, the issue unwraps to reveal delightful surprises. As one season melts into the next, these pieces demonstrate an artful unraveling: in the space of absence springs something new. So let's cast aside expectations, and allow beauty, fear, determination, and wonder to take their place.
When things fall apart, what will you do?
Keep calm and read Window Cat Press.
