NECK is a journal of mostly poetry & photography that comes out every couple years, fully handmade from beginning to end.

NECK publishes emerging alongside established artists & focuses on those making work with a deep heart & true impulse—work that is more from than about.

NECK is a practice of attention & patience & giving to the strange & lovely poetry community, with the intent on providing a physical counterpoint to backlit & easily forgotten mediums.

NECK volume two begins from ideas of haunt, visitation, time as circular, ancestry, histories of the land, trees. It is about 280 pages & was made in an edition of 350 & comes with a cassette tape audiobook.

Nick Flynn, poet and playwright, is also the author of the best-selling memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. A member of the creative-writing faculty at the University of Houston, his work has won two PEN prizes, a Guggenheim fellowship, and been a finalist for France’s Prix Femina. I Will Destroy You, his next collection of poems, will be released later this year. His work has been translated into fifteen languages.

Ryan Paradiso is a poet from northern California living in west Texas. He runs a press called NECK press & will be an MFA candidate at the Michener Center come autumn.

Nick Flynn and Ryan Paradiso will be joined by Jenny Chang and Jonathan Moody.
