offSIDE May is here!


Yes, that’s right, a whole five days early, you can get your (digital) hands on offSIDE‘s May 2012 issue! There’s a lot of great content here, from interviews and sneak previews of Betsy Struthers‘ new collection, to an interview with Poet Laureate of Canada Fred Wah. We’ve got Descant editor Karen Mulhallen‘s guest article, and a photography feature from Julie Sando. Finally, as always, we have a selection of new and innovative writing, this month from Brian Jansen, Priscilla Bernauer, Jess Taylor, and Sarah Morris.

offSIDE March is here!

That’s right, offSIDE‘s March 2012 issue is now here! We made you wait a little while for January, so to make up for it, you get our March issue five days early.

We’ve been previewing our new format for the last few weeks, and today we are proud to finally launch the completely re-designed offSIDE.

This month we have photography from the talented Leesa Bringas, interviews with Mary Ann Mulhern and Terry Ann Carter about their forthcoming Black Moss Press books, Brides in Black and Day Moon Rising, as well as an interview and poetry from TOAST Open Mic Poetry host Josh Kolm. We also have some fantastic poetry from Amanda Earl and Kevin Shaw.

Make sure you let us know what you think of the new re-design, as well as this month’s content, either by commenting here, or sending us a message at or on Twitter @offsidezine.

Without any further ramblings, here it is, March 2012’s offSIDE:
