"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Editor's Note

We're pleased to present the latest issue of Shot Glass Journal, Issue #21. Since 2010 we've promoted short poetry of 16 lines or less as a means for poets to express themselves in the fewest words possible.

This issue includes free verse and formal verse poems featuring new and established poets from Australia, Canada, China, France, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Mauritius, Nigeria, New Zealand, the Philippines, the UK and US poets.

We hope you enjoy Issue #21.

– Mary-Jane Grandinetti
