Issue 12, Spring 2023
Spring seems to bring out the poetic spirit in our contributors each year as Ovis Issue 12 follows past trends of a poetry filled issue.
Included is work from Martha Aguilar, Samantha Burkes, Kaitlyn Cativiela, Ryder Holmstedt, Joe Ketchum, Levi Kilburn, Douglas Kondziolka, E. A. Mc Kinney, Paul Placial and Erin Roper.

Holmstedt and Mc Kinney bring longer pieces in the form of creative non-fiction and fiction.
