december welcomes Jacqui Germain to the december team as our new poetry editor.  Jacqui brings a wealth of experience with her to this new venture and we are excited to work with her. She is a St. Louis-based poet and freelance writer, with work appearing in several literary journals, anthologies, and media outlets. She’s the author of When the Ghosts Come Ashore, published in 2016 through Button Poetry/Exploding Pinecone Press, and has received fellowships from Callaloo, the Poetry Foundation’s Emerging Poets Incubator, and Jack Jones Literary Arts.

We’d like to thank Jen Tappenden for her service as poetry editor for the past four years. She is taking her expertise and energy and moving on to other projects and we will miss her!  You can follow her and see what she is up to here
