Once again in this issue, we have local poets from around the seacoast and the larger New Hampshire and regional map. Our poets range from decades of experience to brand new and everyone in-between. And they range in age from 15 to 93! Some of the poems are submitted through the website and email, but mostly the poems in Good Fat are culled from various local open mics in an effort to showcase and build the poetry community and spread the love of poetry from the ground up.
In this issue we have Jessica Purdy, Ellie Willis, Guy Capecelatro III, Joel Carpenter, Rachel Sicari, Jane Vacante, Sylvia Olson, Matt Stefon, Jim Rioux, Mark DeCarteret, Paul Goodwin, Sal Sciretto, Kat Frame, Skip Manning, Kris Ringman, Cleone Graham, Bnod Rai, Gordon Lang, Lisa Townsend, Jimmy Pappas, Carand Burnet, Terry Karnan, Jade Goulet, Pat Parnell, Rosemary Marshall Staples, John Breneman and Dennis Camire.
Or beautiful cover art comes from Bnod Rai. Bnod is from The Bhutanese Sanischare Refugee Camp in Nepal and he’s lived in New Hampshire for the last year. He was a participant in the Raising Voices poetry class at The International Institute of New England in Manchester. Bnod also has a poem in the Zine.
