Oddball Magazine 13

About

Oddball Magazine: started out as a street zine over 20 years ago. In 2010, I brought Oddball Magazine online. In 2012, I teamed up with Boston poet Chad Parenteau and he became my Associate Editor. Since then, we have been one of the most active online lit magazines in the poetry scene. We have grown a diverse, killer community of poets, artists, and some of the best contributors I could ever ask for. We are an eclectic bunch. We have weekly poetry, art, comic strips, book reviews, music reviews, and an open place for originality. We provide a canvas. Our community paints it.
