Issue 13

Minimal Sonnets
September 14, 2021


Note from the EIC: It is with great love that I publish this Issue, as it pays homage to Tom Snarsky and Jo Ianni’s first iteration of the zine, a site on Neutral Spaces (hosted so graciously by Giacomo Pope) that showcased hundreds of minimal sonnets from all over the world. Although this one is much smaller, I hope you can enjoy this recall to our humble beginnings.
