the poets of 3am magazine under my reign

The poets I have published since my editorial stint began at 3am in 2011. It is a strong list. A list I am proud of. Open submissions are hard work but evidently worth the (extensive) effort. What better way to link up with brilliant pets from across the earth that I never would have known otherwise. And what a job those at 3am have done to make the magazine so respected, with such reach and power while still maintaining an intellectual but non pretentious aesthetic. Hard to do, harder to maintain.
