Welcome to Issue 6 of Nixes Mate Review.
Up here in Boston we could use some of that fabled global warming everyone's talking about. Our navigational hazard namesake is encrusted with a briny rime. With climate change, we may lose Nixes Mate to a 3 meter rise in sea level, but it'll be warmer. Of course, this being New England, we'll complain about that. Complaining about the weather is encoded in our DNA. So are fried clams, Citgo signs, sports empires and poetry.
2017 was a busy Nixes Mate year. We published 18 books of poetry, 1 book of short fiction and 1 best of Anthology. We felt manic about it because the world was going to end. We're still manic about the world ending, but we're going to slow the publishing pace down. 1 book per month in 2018, with our 2nd best of Anthology to make a nice baker's dozen.
Submissions for the Spring issue open January 15th. Read write read write read write is the only cadence we should march to. Happy New Year!
