In our pre-pandemic incarnation, this site was conceived as a weekly poetry journal, publishing one poem each Thursday evening. But, as COVID swept in and jumbled everything (including days of the week,) people were distracted, the steady flow of submissions became unreliable.

That is not to say that we didn’t have some really great poetry early on… which is what this portion of the site is all about. Scan through the posts below to read all the wonderful pieces from our weekly features.
