More later but for now this is an issue of Poets and Artists that is very much a tribute to Didi Menendez' ingenuity. The Self Portraits of artists are excellent and easy to understand, but it is the self portraits by poets that are startling and insightful. A series of will-o-the-wisp thoughts that grab you later, after thinking, after smiling, and after the first run through. She even got those of us who review to come forward!

I have three self-portrait poems in this issue, yay!

But it is just a great issue overall with multifaceted poetry and provocative visuals galore, plus very coherently edited!

A must-read as well as a must-see! Wonderful artwork and great poems from its beautiful beginning to its excellent end.

I especially enjoyed getting to see how the poets see themselves.

One of the magazine's most inspired themes, with poems that startle and linger. Some faves by Joseph P. Wood, Bob Hicok, Renee Zepeda, Barbara Jane Reyes, Ron Androla, and lots more. Memorable paintings and artwork by Stephen Wright, Janet Snell, Jeremy Baum, Francois Chartier, and Dan Murano. ...more

I am honored to have a poem of mine in this edition. The magazine is filled with stunning artwork and poems that are filled with imagery and raw emotions. There is a wonderful poem by Didi in here that made me feel it in my gut. Wonderful.
