Dear Whispers’ Friends,
When Karen invited me to come on board as Whispers’ Activity Editor, last August, I was excited to become more deeply involved with this excellent on-line journal. The more I came to know Karen and meet via poetry so many of our contributors from around the globe the more convinced I became that I had made the right decision. Like bread and wine you have nourished my love of poetry and deepened my appreciation for the gift of words. Any day that I can read your poems is a good day.
Karen and I are excited about the future of Whispers. We are only weeks away from logging 300,000 page views. Next January 15 will mark five years of publishing poets new to the craft as well as those at varying levels of experience. Along the way, we have become a family. We partake together building and nourishing Whispers.
May you continue enjoying the pleasures of poetry as the muse living in you gives voice and image to lines crying for habitation. Have fun with your poetry!
Blessings and best wishes my friends,
Michael Escoubas, Whispers’ Activity Editor
