3rd Wednesday: Spring Issue

Spring2020FrontContributor and Subscriber copies of the Spring issue of 3rd Wednesday are in the mail.  This issue features the winning poems and honorable mentions from our annual poetry contest, judged this year by Marilyn L. Taylor. Dr. Taylor is a teacher and well-published poet with 8 poetry collections to her credit. She was poet laureate of The State of Wisconsin (2009-10).

A number of other poems that were originally entered in the contest have been published as regular submissions with permission of the poets. We give writers in our contests a second chance at publication when they elect that as an option.

This issue sees the return of the popular InsideOut Literary Arts Project, featuring five poems by Detroit area students in the 3rd through 5th grades. We owe the usual thanks to Peter Markus for curating them.

You can download the issue in PDF format for free from our website and print copies can be purchased at Amazon.com.
