MANY OF YOU WONDERFUL POETS out there submit items to this wonderful web site and literally years go by before we can respond to them. This is not the place or your time to hear excuses. Let’s just say that over two years ago, John Schmoyer referred to himself as an “unknown writer” (relative, I assume, to the Internet).

Well times have changed and Mr. Schmoyer, this self-described, “high school social studies teacher from Pennsylvania,” is all over the Internet. I find his poetry at the Department of English, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I see his work at He’s all over the space! And now he’s here. We apologize for the delay.
