The theme for this issue is LIBERTY -  we're opening up the window to the cool breeze of freedom... we're talking emancipation from the dog days of summer and constraints of any kind... be they political, physical, sociological or psychological. 

In this febrile political atmosphere we're studying the boiling point, the heat on the street... welcoming words of release, revolt, revolution and revelation... poems, stories, essays as pure as a cool drink of water on a hot summers day...

The 2nd edition of NPR is now live and available to download.

The theme for the issue is HIBERNATION reflecting upon it as both a biological necessity and a means to rejuvenate and replenish.
We’re helped in that goal by some excellent new writing that includes hibernation poems, wintry reflections and snowy meditations.

The theme for this issue is HIBERNATION...

After a long and turbulent year we turn to poems of solace with the dark winter nights ahead.
