Issue #12 – Winter 1999

Tribute to Latino & Chicano Poets

Conversations with
James Ragan & Luis Rodriguez

 

Releasing December 1999, issue #12 celebrates the work of 23 Latino and Chicano poets, including Jimmy Santiago Baca, Luis J. Rodriguez, Gary Soto, Virgil Suarez, and Richard Vargas. In terms of both quality and quantity, this is probably the best of Rattle’s early tributes.

Also in the issue, Alan Fox interviews James Ragan and Luis J. Rodriguez. Carlos Cumpians shares an essay about small press poetry sales.
