Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Here seeks to present in each annual issue diverse, wide-ranging, and powerful responses in poetry to the essential and endless questions related to "being here" that are implied by the journal's title. What does it mean to be here, truly, or to have been here, back from "there," against whatever odds and forces? The journal is open to work written in all forms and encourages those writing from the margins, whatever those may be, to submit their work. Along with the questions the title raises, we hope, too, that a generosity of spirit emanates from the journal and the poems within it. Here, the title says to you, take this. May it be a good companion for you over a cup of coffee or two, on a road trip, and perhaps far beyond that. Also embedded in the title is, too, a tone a confrontation, or at least a challenge: Here, it says to you, deal with me. Our goal as editors is to bring you, in each issue, a collection of necessary voices bearing witness to what it means to be alive in that moment. We're interested in how you find art within the day-to-day struggle of living. Overtly political poems are not what we're looking for.
