The New York Quarterly, Number 20
Since its founding in 1969 by William Packard, The New York Quarterly has been devoted to excellence in the publication of a unique and fervent cross-section of contemporary American poetry regardless of school of thought, style, or genre. Our only concern is to focus on the craft that underlies effective poetry writing. The New York Quarterly features works by both known and emerging poets. The NYQ Craft Interviews present the views of some of our most outstanding poets on the general subjects of style, prosody and technique. The issues are rounded out with an essay or two on the subject of contemporary American poetry that is both accessible and meaningful to readers, poets, students, and teachers of poetry alike. NYQ 20 features a craft interview with Richard Eberhart, an editorial regarding cover letters, and poetry by Richard Eberhart, Charles Bukowski, Leo Connellan, Eli Siegel, Jesse Stuart, Jackson Mac Low, William Mundell, Allen Planz, Helen Adam, A. R. Ammons, Judson Jerome, Donald Lev, Erica Jong, Ronald Hobbs, Ruth Herschberger, Stephen Stepanchev, Sam Toperoff, Sister Pam Smith, Jane Snyder, Madeline Bass, Gary Ligi, Marc Tretin, Diana Vance, Carol Purdy, Rita Valentino, William Packard, Herbert Waxman, Tamara Watson, William Baer Jr., Betsy Adams, Dennis Bernstein, Stephen Kirkpatrick, Jean Balderston, Diane Raintree, Patrick Bizzaro, Terry Brown, Joseph Bruchac, John Bennett, Christopher Gilbert, Pamela Oberon Davis, Harold Witt, Frank Decker, Leon Diamond, Jane Flanders, Phyllis Capello, John Farrell, and William Ramsey.
