The editors of RHINO are thrilled to announce that our second installment of our online edition of RHINO 2015 is up and out.
We continue to remain committed to publishing a print journal yearly; the publication of the poems online in three installments (beginning 6 months after print publication) is intended to supplement and broaden the outreach of the print journal.
The first installment went up in August and the third and final installment will go up in in late December/early January.
You can now find the poems from the authors below, here.
We will be gathering at the Village Tap in Roscoe Village at 2055 W. Roscoe St. on Sunday afternoon, July 19, from 4-6pm, holding forth in the “back room,” which is actually a covered beer garden out back.
Open Mic – one poem per poet, please!
Featuring these fine RHINO poets:
With special closing act, fast rising Chicago hip-hop MC Rich Jones, who will be performing an a cappella version of a medley from his piece “Chicagoland” (recently presented to strong response at the Elastic Arts Stage at the Logan Square Arts Fest).
