There are poems by Eric Felderman, Arthur Winfield Knight, Fritz Hamilton, James Klein, Jane Creighton, R.D. Swets, Carla Bacon, L.S. Fallis, Judy Neeld, Robert Pinsley, Emilie Glen, Linda Ann Chomin, Barbara Unger, Brett K. Canfield, William Talen, Elliot Fried, Howard Curtis and Ed Porter. There is a short story, “The Machine Shop,” by Ottone Riccio, and a short political essay, “Watergate: The Roots of Corruption Lie in Vietnam,” by William Blum. Near the end of the magazine, as the last artistic piece, there is a short poem by Charles Bukowski, “When Hugo Wolf Went Mad--.”

On the back cover of the issue, there is a section called “The People Inside,” with brief biographical information on the contributors. The magazine concludes with an encouragement to artists and writers to send work in for later issues.
