Scrivener Creative Review

Beautifully ensembled, sporting heavy machinery on the cover and a little bumblebee stamp on the inside, Scrivener is a pleasant surprise. The layout convincingly walks that tightrope between completely-underdoing-it and the avant-guard-artsyness-that-makes-you-want-to-puke. I think it succeeds wonderfully. I open the page to “Grace Blue Dress”, a poem by John Grey and “1980” by Kenneth Pobo. Both are very good, unique and catchy. Actually, most everything I read is good, unique and catchy. Highlights are the poems “My Mother’s Address Book” by Lyn Lifshin, “Bodega” by Andrew Davidson, and the article “Kids Make Chapbooks” by Marta Cooper. Highly recommend this issue of the creative review. It will sit on my bedside table for weeks while I savour it, and become inspired by it, bite by chunky bite. $7 for this tome? Well worth it.
