through August is an illustrated poetry anthology about our continuous
striving to master this experience we call "adulthood" and its accompanying
impressions. The anthology's poets and artists provide perceptive,
insightful views on how we face our issues of identity, expectations,
culture, aging and loss during our ongoing journey through life and maturity.
by Jonathan Bohrn, the new anthology currently features the work of 9 contemporary poets (Rachel Berry, Jonathan Bohrn,
Pris Campbell, Linda Delayen, Alexandra
Ekkelenkamp, Anne Fraser, Renee Carter Hall, Heather Long and
Raechelle Yballe) and selected works by influential classical, contemporary and
emerging poets many of which are future anthology partners. Our work
is graced by the illustrative contributions of over 20 photographers and artists.
through August is an ongoing project - more flexible than a
book, but definitely not an e-zine. Updates are usually annually. Jon
looks forward to his responsibility as editor, which means he can constantly
be on the lookout for new poetic talent. After all, we chose a
big subject, and there's plenty for everyone to say!
