Cleaver’s first issue launched on March 3 to marching bands, confetti, and hullaballoo. Well– that’s what it felt like to us! And now, as we scurry about behind the scenes preparing Issue No. 2 for its early June launch, we pause to up some intermezzi for your reading pleasure.

Our REVIEWS page features commentary and introductions for new books of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, with special attention to small presses. Look for more in weeks to come.

If you are interested in joining the Cleaver review community as a reviewer, or if you are an author with a new small press publication you’d like to share, contact us via our web form.

Happy reading!
