Autumn 2023 in Print: Black Paper

Rust & Moth’s Autumn 2023 issue is now available in print! This one is a study in long-form — with deeper breaths before each piece, line-lengths that stretch for the horizon, and growing fear for the future and its weather. All of this in the service of an old and glowing collection of orchids, scales, roots, apples, ashes, paper… and feathers.

With new poetry from Ronnie Sirmans, Jingyu Li, Smile Ximai Jiang, Richelle Buccilli, Margie Duncan, Michelle Ott, Arlene DeMaris, Victoria Melekian, Amy Lin, Alexandra Romero, Carly Wheelehan Gelsinger, Cecil Morris, Callie S. Blackstone, Isaiah Newman, Lisa Bickmore, Siddharth Dasgupta, Barbara Daniels, Ariana D. Den Bleyker, Jonathan Frey, Ziyi Yan, Julián David Bañuelos, George Chang, Linda Laderman, Jason R. Montgomery, Andrew Alexander Mobbs, Oormila Vijayakrishnan Prahlad, Eugene Datta, JC Alfier, Iris Rosenberg, Scott Ferry, Kimberly Ann Priest, John Powers, Judy Kaber, and Jillian Clasky.
