Commencing countdown!

Black Bough Issue 2 is of galactic proportions. The publication is over 50 pages long and features 100 poets and over 170 micro-poems. We can't wait until #Apollo11 day on 20th July, when the free publication will be uploaded onto the website. Read the Jess Thayil interview in the 'Interviews' section. Jess discusses 'Lux aeterna' - the poem she wrote, which provided the inspiration for the title of Issue 2.
