The third issue in the Poetic Series takes its title Fear of Language from the work of emerging Slovenian poet Katja Perat, featured alongside poetry by Judith Goldman and excerpts from Eileen Myles's forthcoming memoir, Afterglow. Artwork is provided by Willem de Rooij, whose series comprises collected images from the Internet displaying the aftermaths of destroyed and looted cultural heritage sites in conflict zones such as Iraq, Mali, Egypt, Syria, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The “Poetic Series” brings together works of poetry and literature in combination with visual art, introducing young as well as established writers concerned with challenging the boundaries of traditional forms of narrative. Initiated by Keren Cytter and coedited with Fiona Bryson, the quarterly publications focus on three experimental writers or poets per issue—image content is supplied by one artist.
