Summer's here!


Dear Readers--

Welcome to the Summer 2014 issue of Poets' Quarterly! Wherever you are and whatever you're doing through the northern hemisphere's warmest time, someone's written a poem about it.

Here at PQ we've been working to bring you excellent reading material to enjoy at your desk or on your device while you're relaxing after work, enjoying summer break, or already working on your reading list of enriching poetry books for the fall.

This issue we feature the usual series of in-depth book reviews and critical work, plus an interview that highlights one of the ways poetry gets around without a book on its back.

You may have noticed a few things changing around PQ, such as colors and layout. The big change, however, has been bidding fond farewell to Founding Publisher and Editor Lori A. May so she can devote more time to writing, touring, teaching and whatever other projects attract her vibrant writer's imagination.

What's not changed is that as always, we're looking for your comments and submissions. Our submission guidelines have been updated right along with the masthead, but the spirit of community and insistence on high quality continue.

So spend some time on our pages, support our poets by buying their books, and let us know what you're reading.

Poetically yours--
the PQ team
