Here are some reasons that you should pre-order Gigantic Sequins 7.1 ASAP.
*1* Between now and January 31st, 2016, every GS pre-order will come with a GS back issue–free. If you’re missing a certain back issue, let us know which it is when you order, and we’ll send you that specific one–if possible.
*2* This is our first-ever issue with Christine Friedlander as our brand new Poetry Editor. She’s curated a fabulous selection of poems for 7.1!
*3* We probably should have made it number one, but the list of contributors–writers and artists–in this issue is amazing.
*4* We didn’t realize, way back in September, that by accepting a poem by Erin Lyndal Martin called “This Really Happened to David Bowie, But Let’s Pretend It Happened to Me,” we’d be publishing this poem in a culturally significant moment where so many people are honoring Mr. Bowie.
*5* We’ve taken a page in this issue to honor our Teen Sequins contributors! We’re so proud of them, and we’re also happy to see that our current mentorship program has taken off. We’re happy to give them some recognition in our print issue. You can find more information about the mentorship program and/or the Teen Sequins contributors here.
AND MANY MORE!
