This chapbook, themed Counting, Recounting, is set to publish in April. In this issue, we want to think about poetic modes of counting (for example, counting lines, or metrical units -- cataloging -- "making count"), and to explore the resonances between "to count" and "to recount." What can emerge from the space between enumeration and experience, enumeration and song? For this issue, please send us work that is in some way in dialogue with these question, or others resonant with our theme.
