Over the ‘Transom’ comes a new journal

The dazzling poet Kiki Petrosino, who sent Contrary a series of gorgeous conversations between Dante and God (installments one, two and three), has launched a new journal, Transom, with her friend and fellow poet Dan Rosenberg.

Petrosino teaches at the University of Louisville, Rosenberg is a PhD student at the University of Georgia, and some years ago the pair attended the Iowa Writers Workshop together.

Transom is not accepting unsolicited submissions right now, but the editors plan to in the future. Meanwhile, that means the contents are invited. So even if you can’t visit to submit, you might like to visit to read.

The first issue, Emergence, features poetry from MRB Chelko (you remember “On a Dry Street“), Nico Alvarado, Lily Brown, Andy Stallings, Dina Hardy, Kristin Hatch, Greg Wrenn, Chas Kuo-Speck, and M.A. Vizsolyi.

We at Contrary wish Transom the best. Welcome to a world hungry for poems.

    Beautiful journal. Beautiful poems. Love the way you speak to the poets before the poems. Love the way you can page through, as if you were in fact flipping paper pages. Love this: “A transom is the bar of wood that separates a door from the window above it.”
