You can now click on each issue’s number to see who contributed; and you may purchase copies or subscribe at the new order page. Bulk orders for any sort of educational purposes are available at cost, just e-mail us at: info@thecanary.org

In about a month, we’ll begin a Close Reading page at which a few poems from the current issue will meet with their readers’ prose.

Your support is invaluable to our little magazine, so please keep it coming and tell your friends about us. Thanks!

All best wishes,

Josh, Tony, & Nick
