Volume 62 is official

Our launch party on March 26th attracted more than 90 people. We filled the community room at the Princeton Public Library.  An impressive group of poets, some new to the journal and others who have published with us for more than thirty years read their poems in a Quaker-style format, that is, come to the podium when the spirit moves you. Thanks to all the volunteers who worked to bring this new volume to fruition. who shepherded the stacks of books and who contributed to an outpouring of great snacks–all the elements for a successful afternoon.

 We want to give special thanks to Eva Mantell, a New Jersey artist, for allowing us to use her wonderful art. entitled “Poem-a-Day” as the cover image for this year’s journal.  More of her work can be enjoyed at http://www.evamantell.com
