Transparent Words - Eight

Ezine of Poetry and Criticism

Issue No 8 - June 2005

Editorial

I have to admit, I was taken by such a surprise to be asked to edit a special edition of Transparent Words
that my first thoughts were unprintable in any decent church.  I thought; why me, how could I do any justice
to the project?  Then, after a little reflection, I felt it a good opportunity to learn.  To find out what
it is makes successful a read.  To consider further the task and what's required.  Maybe make a better
poet of myself?

I do hope I've chosen wisely from the works received and that for everyone there is something to please, or
even, to inspire. 

I very definitely found this a challenge but have enjoyed it immensely.  

My thanks to Jim Bennett for the invitation to try this "editorship," and my even greater appreciation to
all contributors for making it work.
