Founding Editor Lori A. May introduces this new online publication: “The Ambassador Poetry Project aims to showcase poetic talent from and about Ontario and Michigan. While many of the works featured will naturally offer regional insights, inspirations, and experiences, the publication aims to encompass more than a ‘border town’ vibe. Just as the infamous bridge was created to link the two countries, The Ambassador Poetry Project aims to connect Canadian and American writers and readers who share a common fondness for poetry.”
The first issue includes cover art by C. Shier, poetry by John Jeffire, Mariela Griffor, Penn Kemp, Dana Ruzicka, ML Liebler, Laurence W. Thomas, Ken Meisel, Oliver Ho, Olga Klekner, Amy Stilgenbauer, Melinda LePere, Eric Torgersen, Heather Ann Schmidt, Randall R. Freisinger, Karen Calaiezzi, and visual works by Brita V. Brookes.
The Ambassador Poetry Project accepts submissions of poetry, poetry-related narratives, occasional regional book reviews, and artwork.
