Editorís Notes

Greetings readers,

This month we have four poems for you from both new and regular contributors. I hope you enjoy the issue. For those of you who write poetry and are current or former, Ottawa students, residents or workers, please consider supporting our publishing endeavour by sending us work. Consult the guidelines and submit your poetry to submissions@bywords.ca.

The winter may not yet be over but the spring literary season is almost upon us. VERSeFest, Ottawa's annual poetry festival will take place at the end of this month and before you know it, the end of April will be here with the spring edition of the Ottawa International Writers Festival. Both of these marvelous festivals are chock full of poetic delights, with poets coming from all over the world. I hope to see you at both festivals.

Thanks to our selection committee this month:

Janie Beriault
Beth Ann Hubbert
Fiona Mitchell
Pamela Mosher
Kemisha Newman
Catina Noble
Claudia Coutu Radmore
Sarah-Grace Ross
Carol A. Stephen
JC Sulzenko
