Eye to the Telescope

The Science Fiction Poetry Association launched its new webzine earlier this month.

Each issue of Eye to the Telescope will have a different guest editor and a different focus.

The inaugural issue was edited by Samantha Henderson and myself with a theme of long poetry vs short poetry.

I edited the short poetry section, selecting poems by (in order of appearance) Joshua Gage, Ann K. Schwader, M. Kei, LeRoy Gorman, Megan Webster, John W. Sexton, assu (David C. Kopaska-Merkel), Geoffrey A. Landis, Alan Summers, Howard Hendrix, J.E. Stanley, Naia, Michael Dylan Welch, and Jane Yolen.

Samantha edited the long poetry section, selecting poems by Kendall Evans, Larry Hammer, Jaime Lee Moyer, and Kristine Ong Muslim.

The next issue will be edited by Tim Jones and will focus on the speculative poetry of Australia and New Zealand. Submission Guidelines can be found here.
