Last autumn we debuted our USEREVIEW section of CAROUSEL 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! (you can follow the hashtag #usereviewednesday on Instagram to be notified of all future reviews)
 
Since January, we’ve already published 12 reviews, including full-length traditional and experimental reviews by guest reviewers, as well as short-form ‘capsule’ reviews by CAROUSEL staff (we’ll explain that a bit more later in this newsletter), and we’re listing them all below so you can make sure you haven’t missed any.

New for 2021, we are including CAPSULE REVIEWS as a regular part of our weekly #USEREVIEWEDNESDAY column. These CAPSULES are short reviews, written by CAROUSEL staff, of books we have received as review copies from generous publishers. Some CAPSULES highlight books that have never before been reviewed in CAROUSEL, while others offer a second take on books that have already been written about in-depth by the freelance reviewers who work with us. For those days when there just aren’t enough spare minutes to read full-length reviews, CAPSULES are an easy-to-swallow dose of thoughtful musings about new contemporary poetry and fiction.
