Sharp copy of this short-lived Santa Barbara mimeo, the successor publication to Gael Turnbull's Migrant (1959-60). "In the belief that Gael Turnbull's MIGRANT stood among the best and most readable of the little magazines, the editors of MICA want to continue in its footsteps...Our purpose will be to encourage poetry distinguished by clarity, readability and wit, rather than by a finish which satisfies only theoretical or formal standards of verse" (Note from the Editors, Issue no.1, p. 4). Contents include Charles Bukowski's long poem "WW2," with works by Carol Bergé, John Thomas, Carl Larsen, Larry Eigner, and others. Dorbin C174.
