AnyHoundColorLemon Hound is going for Best in Show with the Volume 5. We are introducing a slate of new voices that have our tails pointing. We heard the readers, in our first two polls you asked for more of everything, rather than simply more reviews, or more poetry, and you asked for it more often. In response we are committed to bi-monthly publication with ongoing additions–so check back often this month. At the end of June we’ll announce our first poetry contest–we are really excited about our judge. We are working in our first fiction folio for the fall. We will be announcing our Prize for Critical Writing by a woman shortly.

Volume 5 features poetry by Jake Kennedy, Jean Donnelly, Damian Rogers, Peter Culley, Adam Dickinson; interviews with Laura Jaramillo, Michael Crummey, and Zoe Whittall; How Poems Work includes, Ken Babstock on John DegenNicholas Papaxanthos on Dean Young, Michael Redhill on Margaret Avison, Lisa Robertson on John Clare, Lisa Robertson on Denise Riley, reviews of Shannon Maguire, Julie Bruck, Steven Price, Amber Dawn, Adam Dickinson, Jocelyne Saucier, Donato Mancini, Gail Scott; Short Takes by Concetta Principe and Adam Sol, and fiction by Michael Duplessis–check back for a number of surprise additions over the coming weeks.
