Summary

Skrews is an independent literary publication that is dedicated to the darker, pain-filled words of poets who've experienced severe adversity, trauma, and tribulation in their lives. While the element of suffering is often held in high esteem in the poetry community, most poets who haven't already created a name go unheard. This publication is here to change this. We are by those, for those, and celebrated by those who are in this very real state of chaos.
 
Issue 001 is a collection of thirty-seven poems from various amateur poets across the United States. As the Pilot Issue, this zine is a quick read that also serves the purpose of laying the foundation for future issues and portrays a wide encompassment of poetry that highlights the subjects of grief, mental angst, displacement, and much more.

    Volume 6 of the Claudia series! Though most daytime soap operas emphasized struggle and strife, “Claudia,” based on the stories by Rose Franken, told the tale of Claudia and David Naughton, newlyweds, just beginning their married life. Young and very much in love, they simply faced the challenges of any new marriage - finding an apartment, getting used to each other’s quirks, and learning to live together. Unlike other popular soaps, “Claudia” didn’t offer daily doses of anguish and heartbreak. Instead, people tuned in for the interesting, fully developed characters, the light-hearted banter between them, and the familiarity of their day-to-day situations. Available now the first time in sixty years, “Claudia” remains wonderful entertainment, notable for the believable interplay between its characters.

    All of Nichol's work is stamped by his desire to create texts that are engaging in themselves as well as in context, and to use indirect structural and textual devices to carry meaning. In  The Martyrology  different ways of speaking testify to a journey through different ways of being. Language is both the poet's instructor and, through its various permutations, the dominant 'image' of the poem. The [nine] books of  The Martyrology  document a poet's quest for insight into himself andhis writing through scrupulous attention to the messages hidden in the morphology of his own speech.' - Frank Davey
