Rust & Moth’s Winter 2023 issue is live! These quiet, solstice-dark pieces rumble with buried light. Here lie bodies on fire, faerie ships, and ribs striking flint on steel.
Featuring new work from Ariana D. Den Bleyker, Suzanne Langlois, Caleb F. Stocco, Heather Qin, and many others, we’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building toward a finalized print edition this December. Join us online (and on Bluesky) as the issue unfolds!
