Diode, a new electronic journal edited by Patty Paine and Jeff Logde of Virginia Commonwealth University and transmitting from the VCU-Qatar campus, is officially charged. I'm excited to see some collaborative work by Julie Doxsee and Mathias Svalina as well as from Allison Titus and Rob Schlegel, and poems by Suzanne Frischkorn and Susan Settlemyre Williams, two more of my favorite poets in this world.
There are also poems by Chris Abani, Laura McCullough, Rick Barot, Amy King, Bob Hicok, Frankie Drayus, Eve Rifkah, Peter Jay Shippy, Tara Moyle, Matthew Wills, Karen Schubert, Carmen Gimenez Smith, Joshua Ware, Rich Murphy, Didi Menendez, and me.
The VCU group does such a nice job, with Blackbird and they're continuing that work with Diode, which promises to be a fine addition to the reading list.
