The gorgeous debut issue of Branch Magazine is now online.
If you keep clicking on the site, after it has finished loading, you'll eventually reach my new love poem "My Beloved". But don't forget to check out all the great visual art and writing, including feature artist Wendy Walgate, feature poet David McGimpsey, writing by Nick McArthur and Allison Strumberger, as well as other cool features like glimpses at writers workspaces, rough drafts, literary horoscopes, and much, much more.
About Branch: Collaborating since 2005, Gillian Sze and Robertsu decided to turn the creative table on you. Branch Magazine is a national quarterly online magazine devoted to exploring the rifts and overlaps of visual and literary arts while showcasing emerging and professional Canadian artists and creators. Branch features contemporary literature, art and design and aims to produce a compelling panoply of art in different media. Each issue is prompted by a particular theme and, depending on how artists interpret the subject, Branch strives to present how artistic minds may bring together a magpie's nest arranged by its clash and compatibility.
Thank you, Gillian and Robertsu. You guys are the best.
