From the Editor:
My Right Mind
is about poetry first, good poetry, interesting poetry, fun poetry, a frightening array of poetry, respectable poetry, gutsy poetry, sometimes even ugly poetry. But I ramble. I've done this before. Credentials. In 1984, I co-founded a publication which is still being published, "The James White Review," and was for seven or eight years also an editor. Off and on I would help in selecting the prose that made up the next issue of the quarterly. But always the poetry. And so much of it was good.
OK, so this site isn't taking off but I enjoy doing it, just don't know how to publicize it. Ideas?
But this isn't about the JWR. This is "My Right Mind" and I welcome any poets to submit their work to be considered for inclusion in what is to be a sampling of exciting and varied poems by as wide a range of poets. And it's not about me, though I plan to put a poem of my own in it's pages from time to time. I want this to be a site people will want to read and return to for another edition. "Hey, Joe, saw your poem in 'My Right Mind' yesterday." For a sampling of what kinds of poems to expect -- and that doesn't narrow it down much - see "The Best of the JWR Poetry" link below. Enjoy this site and submit something ASAP for its inaugural.
