The theme for SPROUT’s second issue is EDGE. We invite poets to think about the edges of the eco-urban. This theme can be interpreted creatively and expansively, but the editors will be looking for poetic sensitivity to the intersections between people, the urban, and nature. We are interested in how poets might interpret what constitutes the edge (or edges) of city life with its marginalia, peripheries, liminality, and in-between spaces. Edges can be places of invention, reinvention, and creativity. Edge is not only spatial, but also linguistic; it exists on the edge of other words: s/(l)edge, (h)edge, (w)edge, (dr)edge, (k)edge.
Could this be where nature enters, disrupts, or reclaims the “built” environment? Are these edges rough or polished?
