ISSUE 62

INTRODUCTION and A NOTE FROM OUR STAFF

November 13, 2016,

Welcome to the long awaited "October" issue of the Ghazal Page (Issue #62) with 33 poems by 24 poets, from talented newcomer Amee Broumand to Mario Petrucci's translations of ancient classics by Hafiz.  Will there be a second "November" issue this November?  Maybe!

With the publication of this issue, all past submissions through July 2016 have been addressed, except for a very few which are being saved for the "Places" issue (#63).  If you sent a submission to the Ghazal Page before August 2016 and have not yet received a reply from us, please let us know.

The next Challenge issue, which we sincerely hope will be published in January 2017, will be "Chill".  Send us your ghazals based on cold, physical, emotional, or metaphorical, by December 15, 2016.

Please address future submissions and other correspondence to theghazalpage@yandex.com.  As a reminder, please send submissions as plaintext or html; this is much more likely to result in the poem appearing as you intended.
