Crosswinds Poetry Journal has arrived!

Crosswinds Poetry Journal

I’m thrilled to announce that friend and fellow poet David Dragone launched Crosswinds Poetry Journal last month. 10% of the journal’s submission fees will be donated to CROSSROADS RI, which provides a variety of housing, education, and shelter services for homeless and at-risk individuals and families.

Crosswinds Poetry Journal will also run a contest with winners announced in March of 2016, and submissions are open now. There will be $1,250 in prize money and 15 honorable mentions awarded. The contest winner and runner up will be chosen this year by Tom Chandler, Poet Laureate of Rhode Island emeritus.
