April 14, 2016, A Word’s Worth Review:
“... a kind of counterpoint and harmony that flows between two poets to create a spiritual synthesis, embracing past and present in a medley of poems” Read the Review
April 6, 2016, Now Available:
Stuart creates a timeless world through dialogs with an old poet, whom we see as he muses in forests, along the river, or as a poet come through time, perhaps from the Tang Dynasty of eighth-century China, where friendship was a key of poetry.

Wires Over the Homeplace


By Paul Dickey

Gary Hotham’s new haiku offering is a masterwork, echoing the Japanese masters—Bashõ, Buson, Issa of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries—yet with his own originality, themes, and lightness:
“our bare feet / next to each other / next to the ocean”
“Poignancy. The word never appears in haiku, yet it is what they live by. The doors we notice opening on light that goes out, and yet was enough. Here is another feast of glimpses from an acknowledged master of noticing.”—Les Murray

June 28, 2016, A Word’s Worth Review:

Entsminger contributes an intriguing article entitled “Finding the Way.” It’s an instructive essay about how the Earth and all living creatures project energy fields and is the introductory piece in this eclectic magazine that features noteworthy poets, photographers, scientists, and artists.” Read the Review

July 13, 2016 Now Available:
“I read Michael Miller’s poems with great pleasure in their accurate seeing, their assured phrasing, their true and proportionate feeling.”—Richard Wilbur
“These poems focus on the intricacies of love, family, self-awareness, and the cracks between dreams and waking life. In his percipient long poem, “A Woman Alone,” he leads us into the depths of an imaginative ninety-year-old woman as she reflects and comes to terms with her life. Michael Miller continues to show his mastery of the human voice and heart.” —Gary Lee Entsminger
