Not quite blank is a new literary review that brings the Outsider Art and Poetry. No one claims editorship of not quite blank, but the editorial slant seems to be towards art brut, Outsider Poetry in the last paragraph, Surrealism, and Dada art and writing. From a painting of WWE wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper to a Popsicle painting titled “Tim Russert’s Thrombosis,” not quite blank seems to error on the side of irreverancy, and irrelevancy.

An in depth investigation about Dr. Millard Rausch and his whereabouts after his antics at the WGON studios is also in issue 1. It is possible Dr. MIllard Rausch is the editor of not quite blank, but no one knows for sure.

Surrealism also seems to be a staple of not quite blank. With smatterings of work from Jesus Correa and Bradley Lastname, it would be easy to say not quite blank is a Surrealist, or even Dada magazine, but then some gritty Outsider pieces by poets like Thomas L. Vaultonburg make it appear that several different types of work from many genres are welcomed. There are also Mermaids by Jenny Mathews from her series Freshwater Mermaids of North America and zombie culture, baseball cards, political rants. It’s a real hodge podge of disparate elements.

As far as submission requirements and contact information, there doesn’t seem to be any. Perhaps not quite blank is just the personal blog of a mad curator who enjoys assembling bizarre poems and art pieces for his/her own amusement. I certainly was amused when I stumbled upon it. I’d like to submit some of my own poetry but I’m not sure who to submit it to. Perhaps I will find out in future issues. In tone and style not quite blank is very similar to Zombie Logic Review in the next to last paragraph Review in its Outsider Poetry style.
