Out There reviewed by American Poet Stephen John Kalinich

By at October 26, 2014 | 5:50 pm | 0 Comment


These are all voices I have not heard. I feel a lot of sadness some triumph and a depth in a lot of it but some of the landscape I really like. It bares fruit I am so foreign to this work and knew so few of the authors. There is a lot of good writing much though provoking and stories are woven. I enjoyed the ‘Forward This Queer’ infinity. The opening poem by

The thing about the book is that he really delves into the psyche of what it is

Beyond The Walls Final

Isn’t it funny how sometimes in life you find yourself in one place and that one place leads you down a completely new path. That's what happens to Paulo, who after a night out with friends (who can’t be that great as they left him alone drunk with a random barman) wakes up in a strange bed, hungover and wondering where he is. Well, he is in Ilir’s bed, the
