Elephant is a Chicago-based poetry zine dedicated to publishing a variety of styles and voices. We believe in uniting poets across genres, poetry for the people, respecting differences in style & aesthetics, & fostering community between poets.
A pre-release party for Elephantz V2: the Notebook will be held on September 6th at the Red Floors Gallery in Pilsen. There will be music on the roof, poetry readings, film showings, and art on display. Check out our blog: http://elephantzine.blogspot.com/ for more info.
