  1. Tara Gorvine Says:

    Hi there,

    I’d like to do a review of Tony Barnstone’s “Impure” if you still have a copy of it. Just a quick note though: I looked him up and this isn’t his first book.

    If you don’t have this one anymore, feel free to send me something else.

    I’m an editor for an academic publisher in Northampton, MA. I received my MFA from UNC Greensboro. My poetry has or will appear in the Cimarron Review, Greensboro Review, Lake Effect, The Ledge, Madison Review, Rattle, Seattle Review, and Talking Review Review.

    Please let me know if you need anything else from me. I look forward to hearing from you.
