Rivet Issue 3

Rivet Journal cover issue 3In issue 3 of Rivet, you’ll encounter the sinister power of the ocean for protagonists from different centuries, explore how our understanding of language shapes our origin stories, and follow a Renaissance man and a woman in to space. Your guides? Fiction writers Youssef Alaoui-Fdili, David Crohn, Joachim Frank, Steve Gilmartin, Allison Hymas, and Gina Williams.

Also in this issue, five female poets take on the obscure and the uncomfortable – calling them out into the street to rip them apart then conjoin them into beautiful, prosodic mutants. Get ready for the poetry of Jenn Blair, Rae Hoffman Jager, Caroline Kessler, Sara Emily Kuntz, and Tori Grant Welhouse.
