Dear PQ community:
Five years ago, I had a crazy idea about the little poetry review journal you have come to know and enjoy for its in-depth reviews, interviews, and essays. Five years…. the time has gone fast. And now the time has come to pass the torch for PQ’s next phase of growth.
It is with great pleasure I introduce Leslie Nielsen as the new Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Poets’ Quarterly. Leslie has a long history with PQ as the essays and blog editor and she has happily accepted this new role and I am fully confident she will continue to lead the journal with success.
My time with PQ has been wonderful. I have worked with an incredible masthead of contributors and enjoyed so much interaction across the literary community. PQ has thousands of readers visit the website each month and I know there is so much more growth to come. It’s time for new blood and Leslie is the ideal person to lead the way.
To the PQ team, readers, and our greater community… thank you. Thank you for reading, sharing, and supporting this venture from day one. YOU are what make it all possible. Please join me in welcoming Leslie as the new Publisher and Editor, and keep reading and sharing PQ with your peers.
With sincere gratitude and best regards,
