Autumn 2023 is Live

Rust & Moth’s Autumn 2023 issue is live! This one is a study in long-form: an old and glowing collection of orchids, scales, roots, apples, ashes, paper, and feathers.

Featuring new work from JC Alfier, Kimberly Ann Priest, Jason R. Montgomery, Ariana D. Den Bleyker, and more, we’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building toward a finalized print edition this September. Join us in the clouds (and on Bluesky) as the issue unfolds!

Summer 2023 in Print: A Constellation of Ignited Eyes

Rust & Moth’s Summer 2023 issue is now available in print! These pages roam the parchment of the west in search of life-sustaining water. Here you’ll find meditations on regret, the wisdom of desert fathers, and experiments with form, easier to see now that the water is gone.

Featuring new work from Andi Myles, Inkyoo Lee, John Philip Johnson, Amy Thatcher, Denise Bundred, Sergio Ortiz, Lane Falcon, Robin Turner, Jules Jacob, B. A. Jansen, Jennifer Greenwood, Francis Walsh, Lana Crossman, Pamela Wax, Beth Boylan, Gabriella Garcia, Nathan Erwin, Dana J. Graef, Merrie Snell, Ron Stottlemyer, Alecia Beymer, Arielle Kaplan, Michael Rogner, Nadia Arioli, Evan Wang, Laura Vogt, Richard Jordan, Andrea Krause, Laurie Klein, John Delaney, Michael Bazzett, Lisa Rhoades, and Carina Solis.
We’re also trying out a brand new home on social media. If you’re able, please look for us at Bluesky!
