Events

  • Mark Jarman and Robert McDowell started the small magazine The Reaper to promote narrative and formal poetry.
  • Conjunctions literary magazine gets its start one afternoon late this year when founding editor Bradford Morrow sits in Beat poet Kenneth Rexroth's library in Santa Barbara, Californiamarker talking over the idea of assembling a publication to celebrate James Laughlin, editor of New Directions. Poets solicited for the publication promised to send in work for future issues of the magazine, not realizing that no magazine was planned. Morrow then started the magazine, financing the first few issues himself.
  • Three new Hebrew literary journals appear this year in Israel: Mahbarot, edited by Y. Kenaz, Rosh a poetry journal edited by O. Bartena, and Hazerem hehadash, founded by a group of young ex-soldiers.
