A b o u t V e r s e - V i r t u a l
Verse-Virtual is a special place. Unusual, to be sure. I imagine you won't find anything quite like it elsewhere on the Internet.
We are a community first. And then we are a journal. In the beginning the community came out of the journal. Now the journal comes out of the community.
Here, the focus is on kindness. Kindness and care. These, plus a bit of reading and writing make for what has become a virtual family. A large one.
The process couldn't be simpler:
Readers read the poems and articles in the journal. When they come across ones they like they write emails to the authors to tell them. Communication happens; friendships develop. Readers who want to share from three to six reviews with the entire community send their reviews to the editor, who then sends them to the group, and posts them on our Facebook page.
We have three Facebook groups:
- Verse-Virtual -- www.facebook.com/groups/versevirtual . This is the place to post news of your publications, career, calls for submissions, and so on. Please also participate in the community by responding to others' posts. Michael Minassian is moderator.
- V-V TALK -- www.facebook.com/groups/v-v-talk . This is where we have discussions about poetry and poetics. David Graham is moderator.
- We also have a new group, V-V SHMOOZE, that is like a chat group -- informal and pleasant. www.facebook.com/groups/v-v-shmooze . June Crawford Sanders is moderator.
