"Brother" published in The Ledge

The Ledge Poetry & Fiction Magazine, No. 30, Fall-Winter 2007 issue arrived today. My poem comes third in the perfect bound book, after the prize-winning poem "My Aunt's Horse" by Melody Lacina, and "Moetotolo" by Gabriel Ramos-Rocchi Huertas (Moetotolo means sleep-crawler in Samoan, and is perhaps a trope in the poem for a homosexual lover.)

Some information from the magazine's website about the journal and its upcoming poetry and fiction contests:

We are proud to announce the arrival of our very latest issue, Number 30! This new issue is filled with over 200 pages of engaging and intriguing poems and stories, and we are pleased to offer it here for sale, for your reading pleasure. The Ledge is also quickly approaching a major milestone within the realm of literary magazine and small press publishing, too, as our next issue will be our twentieth anniversary issue! We invite those who haven't had the occasion to enjoy The Ledge to order a copy today (shipping is still FREE)! We are a fully independent, small press publisher of contemporary poetry and fiction, and we truly appreciate each and every order we receive and thank everyone for their support of the magazine over the years....

The Ledge Poetry & Fiction Magazine is published annually, usually in late spring or early summer.... The Ledge is also nationally distributed to bookstores and fine magazine shops by Bernhard DeBoer, Inc., and our present circulation is 1,500 copies per issue.

The Ledge also sponsors annual fiction and poetry awards competitions, and an annual poetry chapbook competition. For complete guidelines to any or all of these competitions, please click on the "Upcoming Contests" link at the top of this page.
