Here's my Editor's Note:
In mid-December 2017, media coverage revealed how, under the Trump administration, officials at The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the nation’s top public health agency, are discouraged from using a list of seven words or phrases:
While first reported as a “ban,” the matter was subsequently fleshed out to be one of gauging the political temper of the times and CDC staff then concluding that these words would be best avoided in order to garner Administration support for its various (proposed) programs. Such conclusion is not as sexy headline-making as “ban” but probably a more nuanced assessment of the Administration’s inclinations. So what does it mean to avoid words like “transgender,” “fetus,” and “science-based”? What does it mean to avoid the word “entitlement”? This anthology’s poets respond.
This anthology was created within a week after the editor’s Call for Work. Just a week, which is to say, this collection is just the tip of a response. The words are just beginning.
