Thieves Jargon 196

Issue 196 went live sometime over Christmas weekend, and it's a good one. Love the expat and the Russian girl in Tanya's Bare Legs, and the JS Khan's demon monoglogue. Caroline Kepnes always brings her fastball, and Carl Miller Daniels is as gay as ever.

Dig it.

Poetry editor needed

I'm sad to see Spencer Troxell moving on, he brought a thoughtfulness and perspective to the position that I really enjoyed. But co-editors are made to go on to other things, and I don't really mind that.

Poetry editors work in conjunction with --Ed. Dan Scannell to read, evaluate, send rejection letters, and accept an occasional piece of work for Thieves Jargon. You'll correspond with lots of nice writers and a few disgruntled ones. You'll read enough work that yours will only get better.

We're looking for somebody that's been published in Thieves Jargon before, and therefore knows what we like to publish. You need to have an appreciation for street-level writing, MFA-grade craft, and an eye for that one unique line.

Interested candidates, please send an email to thejargon at gmail dot gom, listing a few of your favorite poems, either from our archives or links to other journals.
