From The Editor

What makes any of us who we are? What masks do we wear when we are with others? What masks do we wear even when we’re alone? Over time, our identity evolves and shifts. In youth, the desire to fit in can overwhelm us, and can erase or hide individuality. As we grow up and age, our identities change to fit and reflect the times, our experiences, our race, gender, and more. Often, we don’t realize how we appear to others, and the discovery of others’ perception of us can be a surprise.

The poets in this year’s anthology tackle these issues and deliver mystery, secrets, and revelation. Beginning with fairy tale and ending with a submission to nature, the poems are like different facets of a prism, each revealing a new perspective on what it means to be oneself, while shining a light where no light was expected to fall.
