Featured Poet: Barbara Ungar


The only thing better than publishing a great poet is publishing them twice. Barbara Ungar first graced our pages about five years ago (almost to the month), and I’m working on a theory that everything bad that’s happened in the world since then can be blamed on a lack of Ungar’s poetry taking center stage in our lives. So, yeah—let’s fix that.
