Knockout Literary Magazine is an impressive little mag for coming out of small town Minnesota. The current issue features work by former U.S. poet Laureate Billy Collins, Jesse Lee Kercheval, Mark Vinz, Kevin Zepper, Todd Boss, Tim Nolan, Denver Butson, Athena Kildegaard, Cyrus Cassells, Christopher Howell, etc . . . and the list of past contributors is just as impressive.
They also hold The International Reginald Shepherd Memorial Poetry Prize, which is judged by C. Dale Young and has a deadline of 4/30/12.
