Summer 2023 is Live

Rust & Moth’s Summer 2023 issue is live! 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 Michael Bazzett, Carina Solis, Nadia Arioli, John Delaney, Evan Wang, and many others, we’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building toward a finalized print edition this June. Join us online as the issue unfolds!

Gillespie, Mackenzie Duan, Jingyu Li, B.
