If you know me well, you know that I’m a huge supporter of women-driven publications. Artemis Journal is such a gem. First published in 1977 by Jeri Rogers, this year’s theme is “Women hold up half the sky.” The material gathered within these pages is both thought-provoking and inspiring. I am happy to be published alongside poets such as Natasha Trethewey, Nikki Giovanni and Lisa Stice. Thank you, Artemis, for including my poem, “Jigsaw & Old Coat.”
Hedge Apple is a literary magazine published by Hagerstown Community College in Maryland. I am grateful to its editors for including my poem, “Signs” in its Spring 2018 edition.
Happy to share some work that appears in the special feature of Poets/Editors in the Summer issue (Vol. 2.4, Summer 2018) of Sheila-Na-Gig. “To the Bare Salmonberry Branch in Cold Winter” and “Grief.” Always a joy to publish with Sheila-Na-Gig and to read the fine gathering of work here curated by Editor Hayley Mitchell Haugen and Associate Editor Jessica Higgins.

Kanika Lawton is the Editor-in-Chief of L’Éphémère Review, an online literary and art journal that explores, “the ephemeral, musings on the existential, and establishment of the eternal. We are fascinated with the interplay between memory and reality, truth and interpretation, perception and perspective, and the past, present, and future.” I am grateful to L’Éphémère Review for publishing “Care Of” in Issue IX: Dalliance.
