THE POETRY FOUNDATION
Read about The Rusty Toque on The Poetry Foundation's Harriet Blog.
"We’ve only recently discovered The Rusty Toque, but so far we’re enjoying what we see. Based in Canada, The Rusty Toque is an online magazine featuring interviews, visual art, fiction and–yes–poetry. Issue 3 features work by some of our favorite writers, like Jacob Wren and bill bissett, Robyn Read, and Ashley-Elizabeth Best."
"The Rusty Toque, now in its third issue, is churning some solid butter. And instead of having just the traditional poetry, fiction, and nonfiction categories, The Rusty Toque publishes comics, monologues, art, and even videos. There is room in this home for a lot of different work."

WRITERS ON THE WRITING PROCESS:
Who they read? How they write?
How they got started?
"I wish the mainstream was more open and more interesting."
"Writing is the good use of boredom. I try to have a boring life. I don't socialize, and I eat nine servings of vegetables a day."
