Editor's Note

Muse-Pie Press is pleased to present the latest issue of Shot Glass Journal, Issue #22.

It's always inspiring to open hundreds of submissions from talented poets and always so difficult to decide on a selected few for each issue of Shot Glass Journal. Issue #22 was no exception to this. We've been asked many times why we don't expand the selection of poets each issue, but we think that's what makes Shot Glass unique. Our readers know that when they open each issue of our journal that they will be reading the quality of poems that will make them think about poetry and life in a new way.

This issue includes free verse and formal verse poems featuring new and established poets from Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Pakistan, Romania, Saudi Arabia, the UK and the US.

Be sure to visit our Writers Archive section to read poets published in previous issues of Shot Glass Journal, and our Archive section to read previously posted journals. Check out the Glossary for some of the poetry forms published in this issue.

We hope you enjoy Issue #22.
