January 2013: a new issue and more

Greetings PQ friends!
Welcome to 2013 and to a new issue of PQ. Please visit the Current Issue to see our latest content. We have a nice assortment of reviews, interviews, and essays for you this time around. 

We’d also like to congratulate Tasha Cotter for the publication of her chapbook, That Bird Your Heart. Be sure to visit Finishing Line Press to order your copy! Tasha’s full-length book is coming soon as well, so her schedule just got a bit hectic. With that, we’re wishing her well as she heads off into the world of promotions and readings to support her publications this year—and as she steps down as Reviews Coordinator. Thank you, Tasha, for your wonderful work with PQ. We’ll miss you!

That means we have an opening for an editorial position here at Poets’ Quarterly. The Reviews Coordinator responds to incoming review submissions, coordinates between reviewers and publishers, and keeps things organized and up-to-speed with the Editor. If you’re interested in applying for the volunteer position of Reviews Coordinator, please contact Lori at info@poetsquarterly.com for more information.

If you’re interested in writing reviews or other work for PQ, be sure to check out the Guidelines to know where and how to direct your queries and submissions. Remember, we’re always on the hunt for entertaining and insightful blog posts in between issues, so talk to Leslie if you have an idea!

On that note, we’re pleased to introduce a new blog series: “The Bedside Table” series. What books do you keep closest to you? Send Leslie an informal essay for the blog, like our Contributing Editor Ann E. Michael has done in this intro to the series.

Thanks, as always, to our magnificent and generous team here at PQ. Our department and contributing editors volunteer their time to share their reviews, ideas, and questions with you. Enjoy this latest issue and share our links in your social media spheres. We appreciate the word of mouth!

Thanks for your continued interest in Poets’ Quarterly. Like us on Facebook and stay tuned for more great content coming soon. 

Kind regards,
Lori A. May
Founding Editor/Publisher

p.s. If you’d like to make a $3 donation to help us cover our web domain, email provider, and occasional postage costs, we welcome your support. Our contributors and editors are volunteers so we spend very little on PQ, but if you’d like to donate a few bucks to offset office costs, you may now do so through Submittable. Thanks!
