Rabbit and Rose - issue 1


editor notes for issue 1

As a writer whenever I do a question and answer round, people always ask me what I read. I read everything but there are some things I read over and over. For the time being Rabbit and Rose is a by invitation only periodical. The people you see here are people whose work I really feel strongly about, the ones whose new poem I await with excitement. These are the writers who teach me things with their work, even on multiple readings. I hope to introduce you to, or remind you of, some very fine pieces and to expand the contributors list in future issues. A brief note on the seeming gender bias in this premier issue: I asked an equal number of men and women to contribute and no men actually sent me any work. I intend to address this imbalance in the next issue. For now do understand, it wasn't a lack of trying. Thank you for taking time out to consume poetry. This journal is a work of great affection for both me and my father who is acting as webmaster for this project. I am also grateful to the poets for their participation. Enjoy
