Grain LUDDITE is a celebration (cue the kazoos!) of the desire to make art or writing using methods and materials that are lower-tech and messier, with a process that happens in real time, under available light. Includes stunning artwork by Sonya Adams, poetry translations by Griffin Prize nominee Jeramy Dodds, non-fiction by filmmaker Guy Maddin, poet Betsy Warland, and cultural critic Jeanne Randolph, artist Tamara Bond's Illustrated Horoscopes, new poetry, new fiction, puzzles and more!
