Towards an Insurrection of the Poetic Imagination
Talking Raven Quarterly

A Journal of Imaginative Trouble
Seattle Wa, circa 1991-95. R.I.P.

"An alive, provocative publication with the feel of the early underground.
It includes outrageous editorials, poetry, reprints from other publications
and interviews with local media artists. Also includes interesting ads from
Seattle Alternative scene. Anarchical and bizarre, candid and combative."
