Winter 2020 in Print: The River Man

Rust + Moth’s Winter 2020 issue is now available in print. These are quiet, dawn-dark pages, meant for early morning walks, pocketed grief, and deep breaths in before beginning anew.

With new poetry from Ariana D. Den Bleyker, Sheila Dong, Suraj Nanu, Darby Joyce, Anthony Aguero, Grace Q. Song, Taylor Lauren Davis, Aneska Tan, Emma Miao, Alanna Offield, Ann V. DeVilbiss, Eliza Browning, Christina Miles, Amanda Auchter, Elizabeth Vignali, Kandala Singh, Ashley Hajimirsadeghi, Michele Penn Diaz, Theresa Senato Edwards, Lucia Owen, Joan Kwon Glass, Alexandra Savage, Jean Theron, Caithlin Ng, and Aiden Heung.

R+M is also excited to announce that our print issues will now be released through the print service Lulu. We’ve been using Amazon for one-off printing for years, but we were getting increasingly frustrated with the Amazon backend (to say nothing of the sick amount of personal wealth that Bezos made off the pandemic) so we’re relieved to finally find Lulu, who offered us a practical alternative to the unethical and unwieldy giant. Catch our winter issue and a host of wonderful writers, hot off the Lulu presses today!
