It is slightly different than the on-line version, but very similar to the PDF which is available if you wish to download a copy for yourself. This is an exciting occasion, and we are thrilled you have joined us on this journey!

Next issue will feature:
  • World class poetry
  • International poetry from Dmitry Drozdovsky of the Ukraine
  • Top 10 ways to improve your poems and get published
  • Featured photographer and artist
  • Contest winners - Rhyming and Human Rights
  • and more!
