I was pleased to receive contributors' copies today of a promising new local publication, The Ojai Bubble. My poem , "All the Westerners in the Japanese Restaurant," is artfully laid out on the inside back cover. The magazine overall--conceived, created, and printed in Ojai--contains a mix of thoughtful editorials, photos, and poems as eclectic and delightful as the by-turns-quaint-and-sassy small town I am proud to call home. Kudos to poet and journalist Nancy Gross for expanding in this direction, bringing new and familiar voices together under one shimmering cover.
This inaugural issue is available now at select locations throughout Ojai.
