INTRODUCTION and A NOTE FROM OUR STAFF
December 31, 2016,
Issue 64 of the Ghazal Page includes 28 excellent ghazals, from dusk to death, by 17 poets, and a stimulating essay on the ghazal form in English by Manan Kapoor.
In addition to Steffen Horstmann’s Jalsaghar (Gene Doty’s Foreword is included in the Ghazal Page issue 63), we have the pleasure of announcing three new books of ghazals and other poetry by our contributors: Lotus Mirage (D. Russel Micnhimer); In Which We See Our Selves (Eric Torgersen); and Imaginings (Bill Batcher).
The next issue (#65 “Chill”) might come out on “schedule” in January! Submissions are open until New Year’s Eve. The theme for the next challenge issue, optimistically planned for March 2017, is “Freedom”. Submissions are open until February 2017, and as always general submissions are accepted at all times.
Read, write, and enjoy!
