Light Back On

Light Quarterly, “it’s been America’s only journal of light verse for more than 20 years,” has returned! After announcing their final print issue in September of 2012, Light Quarterly has resurfaced as Light, an online journal publishing twice yearly. Founded by John Mella (December 12, 1941 – April 16, 2012), the publication continues in the tradition to “restore humor, clarity, and pleasure to the reading of poems” under the guidance of Editor Melissa Balmain and Managing Editor Kevin Durkin. The publication is available free online with an archive of links to past issue sample pages. Light can also be found on Facebook where readers can keep up with the Poem of the Week. Welcome back Light!
