20121218_gmrCoverFullAfter celebrating twenty-five years of Green Mountains Review with our 25th Anniversary Poetry Retrospective last spring, we’re excited to rip open a new era with our new–and newly redesigned–winter issue.

The Winter 2012 issue contains a special feature on Eileen Myles, replete with a selection of new poems and an essay by Myles, as well as an extensive interview by Bakeless Prize-winner Brian Russell. This issue also features the work of our first Neil Shepard Prize winners: poems by first-place winner Jill Osier and finalists Melissa Queen and Ben Aleshire (judged by Todd Boss), as well as the winning short story “Swimming Lessons” by Suzanne McNear (judged by Noy Holland).

The issue also features new poems by Denise Duhamel, Olena Kalytiak Davis, Stephanie Brown, Emilia Phillips, Julianna Baggott, Mark Halliday, James Hoch, Lee Ann Roripaugh, Norman Lock, Adrie Kusserow, Gary Soto, Sarah Messer, Barbara Murphy, Chelsea Rathburn, Chad Davidson, Dana Roeser, Brian Russell, Angela Vogel, Dana Gabrielle Russo, G. C. Waldrep, and Lindsey Alexander; an essay by Timothy Kenny; and fiction by Molly Giles, John Weir, Jason Schwartz, Tom Whalen, James Robison, A. L. Snijders (translated by Lydia Davis), and Patricia Duncker.
