LUMMOX No. 1 - 2012


Once upon a time, there was a little magazine, called the Lummox Journal. It was published monthly between the years 1995 and 2004 and bimonthly from 2004 to 2006. And though it only had a few hundred subscribers, the LJ came to represent the best of what was going on out in the small press during that decade. Though it never won any awards or received any honors, the LJ was hailed by many as one of the best "littles" (as Charles Bukowski called them) around.

[the] Lummox, in my opinion, was one of maybe the best half dozen poetry mags in the country.  I wd rather read Lummox than any of the so-called high class high art poetry mags going.  It's got more life and more guts than any mag I know.  - Todd Moore

It was a sad day when it closed up shop.

But hold on...things change, and now it returns as LUMMOX and in an expanded version (8 X 10), appearing once a year, in book format. More poetry, more interviews, more essays & articles, ...Hell! There's more of everything! And it's all yours for one low price: $25 (US) or $35 (outside the US)... if you buy it here, and only here.
