It’s here! Once again, New England’s Premier Independent Poetry Journal “will fill you up” (as NewPages has said in review) for the seasons at hand. With poetry (including haiku) from all corners of New England, the United States, as well as Canada, France, and New Zealand, this gorgeous issue is sure to inspire. Featured Poets are Susan Hawkshaw and Gus Peterson. Showcase Poets are Wayne F. Burke, Amy Gordon, Matthew J. Spireng, and David Wyman. Bookend Poets are Joe Bisicchia and Steve Kupferschmid. Other selected contributors include Kelly Cressio-Moeller, Eric Greinke, Ellaraine Lockie, and Sheila Wellehan. We expect this issue to sell out quickly, so if you have not ordered yours yet, head over to this link: http://encirclepub.com/aurorean/product/aurorean-fallwinter-17/

Other notes from your editor:

  1. As of today, there is just under three months to submit for the Spring/Summer (late April) issue. Time speeds by, and most often, we forget to submit until the last minute. As we are continually reviewing submissions and filling up space in the upcoming issue, it is prudent to submit early! Head on over to https://encirclepublications.submittable.com/submit/20626/the-aurorean where Submittable makes it easy.
  2. Encircle Publications will be announcing our 2017 Pushcart Prize nominations soon, right here. Stay tuned!
