Issue 10 · Winter, 2019

Welcome to Issue 10 of Nixes Mate Review. We were shutdown, not because of walls or intractable and genetic stupidity, but because we coudn't leave well enough alone just days before going live. A new design, a new look, seemed like the thing to do during the week between Christmas and New Years. Did the shutdown prompt one of the writers we chose to ask that we not publish their poem because they "would like to free it up for other magazines". Free it is and good riddance. Despite that, this remains one of our largest issues with new voices, returning champions and a renewed dedication to publishing great writing and presenting that writing unencumbered by clutter, cookies and useless arcana.
