Contributor Highlight: Jackie Clark


"Aphoria" is a poetry collection by past contributor Jackie Clark, published by Brooklyn Arts Press. Here is a review of "Aphoria" by Seth Abramson from The Huffington Post:
"Clark's attempts to connect the abstract decor of the psyche and the inorganic and organic furnishings of a personal life are bracing and alluring. These brief, aggressively-enjambed poems offer several memorable turns of phrase apiece, and never fail to honor the small spaces in which we live as well as the broad expanses mapped by our anxieties, emotional proclivities, and hard-won first principles. None of the poems are titled, and few run longer than a page, but this is only appropriate for a poetics as exquisitely attuned to the minute as this one is."
Jacke's poem "The New Year" was published in issue 12.2 of Harpur Palate. Selections of 12.2 will be viewable very soon from our Archives page, so check back to read Jackie's poem as well as many others, including our contest winners!
