Poetic Diversity, Spring 2013 Issue
Spring brings new life, pallets of sticky pastel-colored Easter Peeps, and National Poetry Month.
I'm not going to get on my soapbox and tell you all that you NEED to support poetry. Instead, I want to thank you... all of you, who have supported poeticdiversity, with your work, and, with the promotion of the magazine. Thank you! I'm grateful, as well as excited, to be publishing the incredible variety of poetry, prose and art that come my way. We couldn't do this without you!
