USEREVIEW: 030–044

Last autumn we debuted our USEREVIEW project and began consistently publishing reviews for the first time in our magazine’s history. We started by posting two reviews per month on our blog — one experimental and one traditional — but we soon found that even this robust schedule was not enough to accommodate the many books that merit attention. Beginning in 2021, we switched to a weekly schedule, with a new review going up on our blog every Wednesday — a phenomenon we’ve christened with the catchy name/hashtag: #USEREVIEWEDNESDAY
 
No matter what form they take — traditional, experimental, or capsule — all of these reviews offer thoughtful, playful, sui generis engagements with contemporary books of poetry and fiction. To date, we’ve published more than 50 reviews to our social media platforms; no. 030-044 are collected conveniently below as a part of our fall issue — if you haven’t been following along each week, here’s an easy way to play catch up!
