“Becoming Beat and Post-Beat in L.A.”

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

The most recent issue of 5_Trope, guest-edited by Doren Robbins, is now posted on-line. I believe the magazine started in print format, but like many other literary magazines (especially those without institutional support) eventually availed itself of the internet. 5_Trope describes itself in its heading as “An Online Journal of Poetry and Prose.”


The current issue (#27) contains poems by Lyle Daggett, Sharon Doubiago, Martin Espada, Ray Gonzalez, Susan Gubernat, Uri Hertz, Andrea Hollander, Christopher Howell, Stephen Kessler, Bill Mohr, Ed Pavlic, Carlos Reyes, Doren Robbins, John Solt, Julia Stein, David Swanger, Michael Warr, Cecilia Woloch, and Gary Young. (The contributors are presented in alphabetical order in the table of contents.) Several of the poets also have a review or essay in the issue. Last spring I gave a lecture at UCLA’s Special Collections library as part of the Bonnie Cashin Lecture series, which 5_Trope has now made available on-line.
