Summer 2016: Nothing Stranger

Who are we? Do we not ask ourselves this question everyday? Are our identities not always in question--not always changing and morphing? These poems call into question our existential bodies--the bodies that live in the spiritual and ethereal realms of our universe--not just the ones that transport us to work and back. I ask myself these questions everyday--and everyday my answers are always a little different.

Winter 2016: The Dead Have Risen

2016 has brought many changes for Yes, Poetry. I started the journal in 2010, when I was merely 21 years old. It was in the days when online journals were still getting their grounding, unsure of their place in the publishing world. Now, almost six years later, I can say the website has grown. I have grown. Online magazines are not so clunky or awkward anymore--it's like they've finally grown out of adolescence to adulthood.
