Dog lovers, you had your turn recently with Ares — and trust us, more dogs are on the way — but today is the day of the cat. Allow us to present Nina:


Nina belongs to Anne Barngrover, a contributor to not one but two recent issues of MAR. Her poems “Dock and Withers” and “Survival Tactics” appear in issue 34.2 (pictured above with the gorgeous Nina), and “Site Fidelity” appears in issue 35.1 as the winner of the AWP Intro Journals Award for poetry. Congratulations to Anne for her fine work and to Nina for looking so good next to MAR.

(p.s. Check out the shout out “Pets with MAR” received recently from Ruminate Magazine!)
