PP (7.2): Editorial Notes

dear PP Patrons,

we hope this finds you all well and happy!

just a couple of things to remind all our poetry submitters:: to minimise our computer time and gain a bit more freedom from the tyrannical rule of the cyber world, we never give links to anyone whose work is featured in PP, since we release each issue exactly on the date as specified in our acceptance emails. also, as a rule, we do never open attachments, nor do we send email requests for bios upon acceptance - please include it in your submission email in the first place unless you prefer not to provide the information.

last week, we happened to read somewhere that poetry reading has in recent years increased from 6.7% to more than 11% while there is an decrease in novel reading. This finding seems to go along with our own statistics: since we changed PP from a quarterly publication to a biannual one exactly two years ago, our yearly pageviews have increased from around 50,000 to 80,000 rather than otherwise as we thought. here are some of the statistic facts that might be intriguing to share (and record)::
1/ as of the cutting time of 4 november, our total pageviews are 361,537.
