Issue IX, Volume IV : May 2013
From the start, it has been my particular guiding principle to be inclusive and eclectic. This not only mirrors my own way of appreciating poetry, but it seems if not utterly democratic then at least striving to be so. My joys as an editor are many. Those times when I have been fortunate to bring readers the work of highly acclaimed poets are special to me, but what makes me happier still is to be able to offer that notable work in juxtaposition with the remarkable poetry of lesser-known poets whose work I run across while living a poet’s life.
