Drunken Boat #12 live online

The Drunken Boat, founded and edited by Rebecca Seiferle, award-winning poet and teacher of English and creative writing at San Juan Community College in Farmington, was once a NM poetry publication but no longer. 

There is still a Drunken Boat, but minus "The," published out of NYC and with a different editor, also academic. Is there any connection beyond obvious reference to Rimbaud's Le Bateau Ivre (avec explication)? I couldn't say. My choice: re-read the poem. In French as usual. I've never read it in English: you're on your own as to best translation. 

Check out the 12th issue of Drunken Boat, featuring a special folio on Pulitzer Prize winning poet Franz Wright including new poems and drafts of his older poems, "Celtic Twilight," a folio of Irish Americans on Eugene O'Neill featuring such contributors as Alice McDermott, Maureen Howard and actor Brian Dennehy, a Short Short fiction folio, Desire & Interaction, the best of the new media arts, as well as our normal fare of exceptional Poetry, Fiction & Nonfiction, featuring many contributors including Irina Reyn, Duriel E. Harris, Robin Helmley and Jurica Pavičić. Now live and online!

Drunken Boat is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that depends on the contributions of its readership to continue to thrive. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today. 
Thanks for your continued support! Plunge into the summer issue of Drunken Boat while the weather's still warm and let us know what you think.
