Sonic Boom is a literary & arts journal seeking both solicited and unsolicited experimental poetry, flash fiction, and visual art submissions tri-annually. They “hope to integrate multifarious genres of literature and artwork including Japanese short-forms of poetry, avant-garde, conceptual, and postmodern works of culture and art.” The issues come in free downloadable PDFs with beautiful formatting and always gorgeous art.

On hot days cool noodle dishes are just the thing to satisfy a yearning for something nutritious, colorful and easy. This low-carb ramen noodle-style salad ticks all of the taste boxes: spiralized vegetables, thinly sliced omelette, colorful crunchy add-ins and zesty Japanese dressing.
