⌖ BAREKNUCKLE POET JOURNAL OF LETTERS: EDITORIAL JULY 6, 2020
This next round of FIGHT will be our last for the foreseeable future.
We have been doing our best to give back, and the response from our community has blown us away. For that we are humbled, and so thoroughly grateful to be reminded again and again of the power in art and community.
This initiative has always been an unsustainable sprint; a quintupling of our workload under pandemic conditions. Our reach exceeded our grasp, as Browning would put it, but we believed it necessary. We believe in poets, in the worth of our words, and we make no bones about doing our goddamned best ‘til we could do no more.
To those that have submissions pending; your work will be considered for FIGHT: Round 4. Any work submitted beyond the date of this announcement will unfortunately be declined out of necessity.
But enough of the dour stuff. What’s next?
