#10, Summer 1992

Box 7647
Laguna Niguel CA, 92607

32 pp., $10/3 issues

Excellent 'zine to send poems to, for editor Ron Offen painstakingly comments on everything he receives, and rejected poets win free subscriptions to the magazine if Offen thinks them deserving. Of course, this can mean double-rejection if he declines your work AND rates you unworthy of a free subscription. The poetry in #10 is mostly conventional free verse, but much of it clicks, like Billy Collins's "Refrigerator Light," which I quote in full: "I stop thinking/ about her/ the minute/ she slams/ the door."--Bob Grumman
