Announcing Brave New Word Issue 6

Ladies and gentlemen!

Brave New Word #6 is going live on July 4.

This time - things were moving rather fast and the whole issue came together almost on its own. So smooth i can't believe it really happened. But it is. Anyway.

In this issue - you will see much more textual stuff. There's an epic poem. And a play. And even a QR poem and onomatopoeia rampage. And some steamy visual poetry. And some collages.
Spread the word and bring your friends!

  • Peter Carlaftes
  • Drew Pisarra
  • Carlo Parcelli

                    ISSUE 5

                    ISSUE #5

                    Editors note:

                    This one was a rough ride. I don't want to get into the details but this time i had to deal with so many submissions that were inadequate to the magazine's concept I thought somebody was joking on me. That was downright discouraging. That's why this time I relied more on curated content than incoming submissions. It made a better issue.

                    I'm glad to present you the works of the following:

                    Angela Caporaso - Three collages

                    Angela Caporaso is an Italian artist focusing on visual poetry and artists books, working with the mediums of collage, trash-art and, more recently, digital formats . Angela Caporaso's art has always been characterized by a constant research and experimentation.
                    Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, she has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages.
                    This constant research led Angela to contaminate sign with colour, font with image, literature with painting, as though one single medium was not sufficient to express her complex imaginative world.
                     Angela Caporaso has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers.


                    Glen Armstrong - Three poems

                    Glen Armstrong edits a poetry journal called Cruel Garters and has three recent chapbooks: Set List (Bitchin Kitsch,) In Stone and The Most Awkward Silence of All (both Cruel Garters Press.)

                    Yrik Max Valentonis - Herstory #5

                    Yrik-Max Valentonis wanders through the urban landscape seeking out fairy circles. He makes puppets so other people can see his imaginary friends. He steals apples to justify his philosophy. He is Baba Yaga's favorite grandson.

                    His comics and writings have appeared in magazines, e-zines, and the anthologies: Sinbad and the Winds of Destiny”, "Zombie Nation: St. Pete", "Animal Blessings", and "Divided Again".
                    He has M.F.A. in Poetry and Prose from the Naropa University and a B.A. in English and American Literature from the University of South Florida.

                    Sean Smith - Forty Weaves #5

                    Sean Smith is an artist, writer, athlete and independent scholar who lives in Toronto. He has exhibited and performed internationally as part of the Department of Biological Flow, and is currently adjunct faculty in both wearable art and site-specific material practice at OCAD University. His first collection, Overclock O'Clock, is available from Void Front Press

                    Kyle Hemmings - Six text-visual combos #5
