dear PP Friends,
as previously planned and announced, we meant to have a special section devoted to Poetry Canteen in this issue, but unfortunately because we have not received enough poetry submissions from canadian teenagers or high school students, we have to postpone this project indefinitely.
another less exciting thing to mention is that our Poetry Pacific has gradually become a one-man show now: as Allen is too busy with his school studies and other pursuits to spend any more time on poetry writing and publishing, Changming is the only one working behind the whole scene, and even he has to keep his computer time minimum as a result of his deteriorating health, especially his hurting eyes.
nevertheless, we do have some good news. for one thing, we are planning to produce a print anthology sometime next year. more importantly perhaps, we are finally ready here at PP Press to take manuscript submissions of any length from anyone all year round. while we charge no reading fee, we welcome submissions via email - please send your poetry manuscript to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (our revised guidelines can be found at :: http://poetrypacificpress.blogspot.ca/2014/08/pps-open-call-for-ms-submissions.html).
in this issue, we are honoured to showcase 1 poetry editor, 2 visual artists and 53 poetry writers.
thanks for your continuing support, and happy reading!
