Atticus Review

‘Song-Changer’ is a new poem and it’s up on the Atticus Review site.


Michael Meyerhofer and Amber Shockley are the poetry editors at Atticus, and they are always on the lookout for ‘hybrid, unconventional work that pushes boundaries, elevates and edifies on an intellectual level, that investigates the inscrutable essence of a thing, that avoids artifice to stand firmly in its unique voice’.
