ATTN: is an event-based journal. Twice a year, we ask poets to document whatever it is that has their attention on a particular day (poems, notes, sketches, collage, reviews, screen grabs, etc). Work is done on 8.5 x 11″ sheets, then mailed to the FOBW press address. Covers are letter pressed & laser printed, and all contributions are xeroxed and included as is. Each issue documents communities of attention in their moment of attention.
The first issue features contributions from Amanda Ackerman, Harold Abramowitz, Will Alexander, Kimberly Alidio, Andrea Beltran, Sarah Campbell, Jessica Ceballos, Chen Chen, Ching-In Chen, Chiwan Choi, Norma Cole, Allison Noelle Conner, Beverly Dahlen, Janet E.
