Poetry Now

Welcome Poetry Now's new managing editor
I am honored to be taking over as managing editor of Poetry Now. Our publication is going through some restructuring right now, and I believe that you will be pleased with the changes during the next few issues. We have, of course, switched publication from monthly to every other month, and we will add more online content. Your opinion is important, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m finishing my MA in English—Creative Writing at CSUS. I hold degrees in studio art, fashion design, early childhood education, and English. I am a Sacramento Poetry Center board member and am active in many arts organizations in the Sacramento area. In addition to poetry, my other loves include designing and sewing garments, art (fiber, pen and ink, watercolor, mixed media, serigraphy), bicycling, and the blues. In my past life, I’ve worked as a preschool teacher, designer, manual writer, sewing instructor, custom tailor, customer service rep, and I owned my own needlework design and supply mail order business where I produced a monthly newsletter without benefit of a computer. I currently tutor writing and teach sewing. I’ve worked as executive editor on Calaveras Station for the past two years and as creative nonfiction editor for one year before that, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to work on Poetry Now with talented, dedicated editors, designers, and staff.

Farewell to Poetry Now's outgoing  managing editor

poetry fans,

here it is! my final issue of poetry now! twenty pages chock-full-o poetry, info, photos, articles, and an interview.

best of luck to trina drotar, who will be taking over as editor -- and to richard hansen, who will be providing layout/design work for spc. no doubt, it will be a sharply crafted poetry pubication in their expert hands! much of the rest of the staff, content, and material will remain the same -- so you may rest assured you'll be getting the same product, only with a new twist.

in this issue, poems by: tom goff, patricia hickerson, dan thomas-glass, shawn aveningo, danyen powell, ann privateer, james webb wilson, colin dieden, sean king, geoffrey neill, brenda k. ledford, lytton bell, oliver rice, merle martin, john hesselbein, lowell jaeger, howie good, laura lehew.

plus, photographs by katy brown, an article by jack schouten, and an interview of tim kahl by lisa a. jones.

a big thank you to every one of you who helped me make poetry now happen for the last two years. i couldn't have done it without you!

best wishes,

frank graham
editor, poetry now
