I've just received my subscription copy of Tinfish magazine. This is issue 16 and it's a special collaborative venture with the Aotearoa/New Zealand and Pacific Islands journal Trout.
Tinfish is edited by Susan Schultz. It collects poetic writing from the Pacific Ocean region stretching right acoss to East Asia and always provides an eclectic and original read. Every issue has amazing artwork designed by Gaye Chan.
Trout is an online journal of arts and literature, based in Auckland and edited by a quartet - Brian Flaherty, Anne Kennedy, Tony Murrow and Robert Sullivan. A collaboration of these magazines seems inevitable given their similar editorial bents. There are 81 pages packed with great poetry and off-beat imagery.
