Fish Drum

FISH DRUM Magazine, founded in 1988 by Robert Winson (1959-1995), now edited by Suzi Winson, is a literary review that appears on the horizon in perfect-bound book form as the ultimate beach read for Bodhisattvas. FISH DRUM has a soft spot for schmoozy, emotional, imagistic stuff... also literate, personal material that sings and surprises...a place to discover zen oddities, carnivores, assorted larvae, immolation craters and wayward dragons. FISH DRUM has published works by Philip Whalen, Joy Harjo, Arthur Sze, Nathaniel Tarn, Alice Notley, John Brandi, Steve Richmond, Jessica Hagedorn, Leo Romero, Anne Valley-Fox, Judith Barry, Thomas Zummer, and Miriam Sagan.

Ingredient List: The upcoming Fish Drum #16 includes Sam Keen, Tom Ireland, Craig Paulenich, Thomas Zummer, Doren Robbins, Nadja Millner-Larsen, Steve Sanfield, and others.

Directions: Read. Think. Read some more. Chuckle. Ponder. Drop your Fish Drum in the bathtub. Buy another one. Order 12 as party favors. Recite several Fish Drum poems on public transportation in your best monotone. Notice how inexpensive poetry is.
