We had the theme MY BEST POEM for March. It is the same for April. That way everyone
gets a chance at it. If you choose to use the theme, please say something about your poem in an Author's Note. I have had some terrific responses in the March issue.
Don't worry if you see a "NOT SECURE" notice next to the URL on the V-V website. Without going into technical details, I will just say that you can ignore this message. It's a complicated thing, but there is absolutely no danger.
I am pleased to tell you that besides David Graham's POETIC LICENSE we have a new semi-regular column starting this month: Tad Richards' INFORMAL, which features articles about poetic form and related topics.
Let us welcome four new contributors to this issue: Shoshauna Shy, Sam Norman, Scott Waters, and Mary Wehner.
To all VV'ers: Please remember to submit poems to V-V every other month or less frequently (except for the contributing editors who contribute every month). I am trying to keep V-V's size down. PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT I ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS ONLY DURING THE FIRST TEN DAYS OF THE MONTH PRECEDING THE ISSUE MONTH -- NOT EARLIER OR LATER.
Have a marvelous March.
