8 Reasons Why
Original painting by Metin Bereketli
"October. For me, autumn has always signified a time of renewal rather than rest, and with this quarter, my love of poetry is renewed.
The astounding work of some of our favorite poets appears here, in addition to works from untried voices whose verse caused us to applaud.
You will enjoy what you're about to read, that I promise.
My thanks to each and every poet you are gods. My thanks to Assistant Editor, Kristi Swadley. Without her, AVQ would not go on.
My thanks to the awesome talent of our cover artist, Metin Bereketli.
