Issue Three — June 2016

MOONGLASSES Cover FRANCO


Letter from the Editors:

Guys, it’s an exciting time to be alive. We’re publishing poems about frozen heads and flying refrigerators and Smash Mouth and the many issues that arise in the art of eyebrow grooming (for those of you who don’t know, there are A LOT). We’re bringing you a sad dentist and a sad James Franco and a sportscaster who’s probably sad since he’s covering a thumb-wrestling war instead of a Yankees game. We’re paying you (Five dollars! That’s a whole Little Caesar’s pizza, folks!) to write stories based on Clipart images. The literary world is a strange place, but we’re glad to be in it.

Sincerely,
Aleyna, Kristen, Devan, and Ben
