Selections from this new issue will be read by the magazine staff and Martha Silano.
Martha Silano is the author of three books of poetry--What the Truth Tastes Like, Blue Positive, and The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception, chosen by Campbell McGrath as the winner of the 2010 Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize. Her poems have appeared in Paris Review, Kenyon Review, Poetry Daily, American Poetry Review, Ellipsis, and The Best American Poetry 2009, among others. Martha teaches at Bellevue College, near her home in Seattle, WA.
