Introducing the First Online Issue of 2013

Welcome to the New Year we hear it will be life-changing and exciting and inspirational. Welcome to Friday (also often touted as exciting and life manipulating, at least temporarily). Welcome to the January Issue (8.1) of PANK.

Be sure to read: two poems from CJ Evans, Contributing Editor at Tin House.
In Lieu of Questions from Rae Gouirand may have you asking yourself some questions.
A first time published author, Brianna P. Stout wrote this poem and it’s awesome. Welcome.
Do not under any circumstances miss How to Date a Stalker: Declarative Verb Edition from Lisa Nikolidakis.
Two Poems, Tara Boswell.

Also: fiction from Lynne Beckenstein, Amanda Hart Miller, Gregg Murray, and Bridget Menasche and, we’ll admit to being a bit poetry centric this time around, not that we have any shame in that in fact we are quite excited so be sure to read these pieces from Sam Sax, Anis Shivani, Changming Yuan, and Stephen Massimilla: all of that is here.
