November’s Table of Contents

Happy third birthday, EDP!

Every Day Poets has had the pleasure of presenting a wide variety of poetry on a daily basis since November 2008 and we are delighted to celebrate our third birthday with you. Thank you for your readership, comments, submissions, and support for the past three years. Thank you to our staff who contribute many, many hours every month to read and comment on submissions, choose the line-up, and communicate with authors. It is no small thing to publish new work every single day. But it is our passion to share poetry aimed at a general audience and we like to let writers know why their work is or isn’t accepted. We will continue to work hard to maintain professional standards that help make Every Day Poets the best it can be.

November is a month filled with assorted holidays and observances: All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Guy Fawkes Night, International Men’s Day, Thanksgiving, St. Andrew’s Day, independence days for various countries. The Leonids meteor shower reaches its peak near the middle of the month. Many of us will honor Remembrance Day or Veterans’ Day, depending on which country we live in. For November 11, we have scheduled Oscar Windsor-Smith, who is publishing his poetry with us for the first time. We hope his work moves you as much as it moved us. Other newcomers include Matthew Christian Borkowski, Jennifer Pitzer, Ira Smolensky, Mary Alice Endicott, Allison Davies, CG Olsen, and David Harker. Welcome to all.

Wherever you live, there is always something to celebrate, something to see, something to spark your creativity. One of the pleasures of being part of a poetry journal with an international audience is just this sort of realization: we all have observances that make our existence meaningful and communal. Poetry can extend that meaning to reach others. Poetry is a communal gift.

So go forth and read. See what you think. And stay with us for the next three years. The best, as they say, is yet to come.

- Kathleen Cassen Mickelson, Assistant Managing Editor
