Editor's Note

There are times when I reflect on what Shot Glass Journal means to its readers and the poets published within. For me, trying to fit in the selection of a limited number of poets from a large entry of international submissions while still managing other responsibilities can seem overwhelming at times. But it's not until I receive a thank you from a truly grateful poet that I realize that it is all a labor of love. In Shot Glass Journal Issue #17 I hope the readers find those moments of joy and deep thought that I experienced while reading these poems from new and well established poets.

Issue #17 includes free verse and formal verse poems from international poets from Australia, England, France, India, Israel, New Zealand, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Wales and US poets.

Thank you to Lonnard Dean Watkins, our talented webmaster who makes our journal so unique. We hope you enjoy this issue. Please feel free to leave a comment on our Comment page.
