Dear Friends and Fans of Poetica Magazine

Poetica Magazine, in its present form, is going on a hiatus of undetermined duration. Visiting editors and longtime editor, Michal Mahgerefteh, agreed that at this time, the financial viability of producing three print editions a year is no longer a possibility. While there has been much encouragement and praise for the magazine, financial support is light. HOWEVER, the editors will continue to manage the Anna Davidson Rosenberg Poetry Award and will work on developing and producing a new annual anthology under the title, MIZMOR L’DAVID ANTHOLOGY, currently open for submissions.
