Passion and words make for literary rags. Clover, A Literary Rag is a semiannual magazine featuring stories, poems, memoir, and an occasional review. Based in Bellingham, Washington; the rag hosts writers from the region and the world. New writers mix with seasoned writers--and writers from the Independent Writers' Studio are featured. Clover celebrates words, and in this light there are no photographs or visual art in its pages. Come join James Bertolino, Shannon Laws, Elizabeth Vignali, Laurel Leigh and the many other writers featured in this issue as they read from their works.
