This issue features poems by four contributors, one of whom is publishing under an intriguing pseudonym and another who has never had a poem published before. Providing a space for both emerging and established poets is one of Bywords' mandates, so it is rewarding to see the mandate achieved.
It was a pleasure to see a number of you at VERSeFest earlier this month. I hope you enjoyed the plethora of poetry as much as I did. The coming months offer a range of literary events, including the spring edition of the Ottawa International Writers Festival with its focus on ideas, a great opportunity for lovers of literature to expand our horizons. It's not too early to start a membership.
Thanks to our selection committee:
