Thank you for staying with us through a tough year. Sometimes that damn thing- "real life"- gets in the way of our plans, ideas, dreams, whims. And we have to reckon with reality. I want to apologize for the delays and slow progress on the pile of things to get done. Some health stuff, work stuff, life stuff, etc. have made it difficult to keep at things with the force and diligence of years past. I am adding interviews, reviews, working on the digital versions of our books for our "bookshelf" area. We have new winter issues up of great fiction and poetry. Another issue of MiCrow flash in the works, submissions are open for that. And in a few months we will have new events to share including the next Toxic Abatement
, more of the wonderful Bitchez Brew series (link!)
in the bay, and of course BEAST lit crawl in Oakland in July. If you made it last year, you know that it was an amazing effort with hundreds of readers, volunteers, curators, community partners and supporters. Look for that info, in July.
Here are some links to check out some of these things:
Full Of Crow Poetry

MiCrow- Open For Submissions, See site.
PRATE: Full Of Crow Interviews
: Recently added include Michael Grover and Leah Angstman.
: Many on tap, including Zarina Zabrisky, Bud Smith, and more. Please note that after the reviews "promised" the reviews section will be closed to requests. (ok, it has been but we get them anyway and despite being swamped, we feel bad and hate to say no.)
Unfortunately, after three years, we are going to end the printed issues of Blink Ink. We are going to send out the final printed Graffiti issue soon. We might revisit the online format that we used to have, but we aren't sure. We will try to make right on the subscriptions but we will not be accepting new subscriptions or submissions for the print issues. Previous issues will start to appear archived in digital format this year on our "bookshelf".
We appreciate the support for three years of our printed books. Edited by Doug Mathewson, these have found their way all over the world. We have had these books at book fairs, readings, events, and more. This project has a special place in our hearts here at Crow. We will let you know what happens next.
Thank you and please feel free to get in touch. -Lynn Alexander
