Issue 74.png

INTRODUCTION and A NOTE FROM OUR STAFF

October 29, 2017,

Welcome to issue 74 of the Ghazal Page, with 17 intriguing ghazals by 10 excellent poets.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

In addition to regular submissions, there is still (a little) room in the next themed issue–"Fire"–scheduled for November, with submissions received before the end of October receiving preference.

The theme for Issue #77 will be "Alone" - sad or beautiful, in solitude or in a crowd, there's always a way to be alone.

Read, write, and enjoy!
