ISSUE 63

INTRODUCTION and A NOTE FROM OUR STAFF

December 14, 2016,

Welcome to the "Places" challenge issue, with 26 superior ghazals by 22 poets.  We hope that you will enjoy reading them as much as we did.  The next issue of the Ghazal Page "should" be released some time around the new year.

The next Challenge issue, which we sincerely hope will be published in January 2017, will be "Chill".  Ghazals based on cold, physical, emotional, or metaphorical, received by December 15, 2016 will receive preference.  Break the mold - read the submission guidelines!

Please direct all future correspondence to theghazalpage@yandex.com.  It's the right thing to do.

Read, write, and enjoy!
