Some Props for Poetry Quarterly

Late last week, the fall 2015 issue of Poetry Quarterly arrived in my mailbox. The journal is about five years old, and I have been published in some of the earlier issues. However, the fall issue is the strongest issue I’ve read to date. It is much slimmer, only about 80 pages, and it has a guest editor, Jodie Hollander. This issue’s featured poet, Christina Pugh, is a recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, and her work has appeared widely, including in The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, Ploughshares, and elsewhere.

The new issues contains a variety of forms and schools of poetic, from surrealism, to narrative, to the neoformalism of two featured Dave Mason poems. I feel fortunate that my poem, “September,” is published in this issue, and I will continue to support this journal. It’s been a pleasure watching it grow over the last five years. If you’re interested in purchasing any issue, including the new issue, you can do so here.
