I don’t focus as much on literary journals as books. But I have accumulated much over the years. This morning was for going through the library and weeding out journals to donate to the local library. The photo above are of two of the stuffed shopping bags for said donation.

But I made exceptions for the following journals below. In general, I kept their issues because they teach me much about poetry. Not all poems, even the ones I enjoy, teach me something about poetry so my keeping of these journals is a compliment to their participants and editors. This means, please consider this post, too, to be a THANK YOU, to the listed editors below for their good work:

VERSE (editors Brian Henry and Andrew Zawacki)

TINFISH (editor Susan Schultz)

AURGABE  (editors E. Tracuy Grinnell, Julian T. Brolawski and erica kaufman)
