Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 14 . . .
Editor’s Note  . . . July 2009 . . .

Every batch of submissions brings me some duds, some surprises, and some extraordinary poems that I can’t wait to publish. Sending out rejections has always been the hardest part about editing a poetry journal; this time it felt like I’d met some really amazing people on a bus and only had a half-hour to chat before I had to say goodbye. My only hope, as always, is that the next time I get on the bus, those almost-friends will be there again, waiting for me to hear their words. I’ll drift down the aisle, checking out the seats, looking for something to read. Until then, savor the ten poems I dragged off the bus with me. Enjoy them as I remember the few I had to leave behind.

It's all about the poetry.
—Sincerely yours,

Christine Klocek-Lim, Editor

About the journal

Reading poetry is a pleasure for which too few of us have the time to spare. My aim, as editor, is to make poetry as accessible as possible: simple pages, simple formatting, exquisite poetry.

Autumn Sky Poetry publishes four issues per year, during the months of January, April, July, and October. Every issue contains ten poems by ten different poets. Each poem is one that caught my eye, held my attention, said something profound. The poets may hail from all across our lovely planet and their poems may speak in many different voices, but each one is worth savoring.
