Drifting Sands Issue 7 is Live! Submissions open.

Greetings Poetry Lovers!

A belated, in some cases, but thoroughly optimistic Happy New Year to each and every one of you. There's no reason to dredge up that "other year" except to say that Drifting Sands was born and that's at least one reason to be thankful. Then there's the matter of every breath of air we take in—little things. And then there are you, the readers and writers. You deserve the praise. What would this world look like without you? Thank you for your inspiring contributions to the journal. It wouldn't be possible otherwise.

Drifting Sands Issue 7, January 2021—guest-edited by Marilyn Humbert—is now live!

You can find it here:

January also marks the launch of our first Special Feature: "Girt by Sea." This collection of poems and photos by artists from Down Under, compiled by poet-photographer, Gavin Austin, is here:

Submissions are now, as always, open. The current guest editor is David Kelly. Please reach out and grab his attention with your best work, and don't forget to check the submissions page

for changes which include our NEW submission email address!

Editor Opportunities

Drifting Sands is seeking guest editors for future editions of the journal. If interested, drop Richard a line via the contact page.

The journal is a volunteer-based operation. For example, all dsh editors, to date, are volunteers from our pool of contributing poets. Some have experience editing; others have never tried it, yours truly included. Each brings their own outlook to the role, though, resulting in a unique collection of poems for your consumption. It's a work in progress, the editorial system at Drifting Sands. Most of all, this has been and continues to be, a journey of collaboration and discovery. So kick off your shoes and put on your reader's hat or roll up your sleeves and dive in. See what Marilyn and the other editors and poets have to offer and give it a little thought.

Other than that, have a great day, enjoy the issue, and stay safe. We've made it this far. Might as well go all the way. 😉

The beauty of art is that it offers the viewer a pathway into their own imagination.
