Society of Classical Poets Journal Vol. 6 Released The Society April 1, 2018 From the Society, News of Note, Poetry 13 Comments The Society of Classical Poets is reviving poetry with rhyme and meter and the response has been widespread and tremendous. Since the Society was founded in 2012, we have grown from a daily blog with weekly posts to a major non-profit organization publishing the highest quality poetry on a daily basis, as well as insightful essays, reviews, and the most exquisite art. People have been waiting for the return of real poetry, poetry that has clear thinking, discipline in form, and virtue in spirit, and now it has arrived. On this joyous and eventful April 1, we are pleased to announce the release of our Journal Vol. 6. A list of poets and artists whose work is featured is below. The journal can be purchased online here. If you are on the list below, you are eligible to receive a free electronic copy of the Journal Vol. 6.

Reply Satyananda Sarangi April 3, 2018 It is really an honour to be sharing space with all the heavyweights in this volume of the journal. Hearty congratulations to everyone. Regards Reply Ann Christine Tabaka April 4, 2018 Thank you I am honored. I eagerly await my copy. Reply James Sale April 9, 2018 I now have my physical copy – it arrived Sunday, courtesy of Amazon! And it is a wonderful collection: the work of the poets of the SOCP goes from strength to strength. Evan and his team deserve our profound gratitude for what they are accomplishing with this work. I followed up a link from Evan to the ‘poetry in your pocket’ event and the kind of poetry which I found thereabouts made me realise that there is as much dreadful twaddle posing as poetry in the USA as there is in England. O for a Muse of fire! Reply Lorna Davis April 9, 2018 I have my copy from Amazon now, too, and it’s beautiful. I’m honored to have been included. Thank you, Evan, and the staff of SCP. You’ve really created something special here. Reply Alexander K Ream Jr November 8, 2018 I’ve been remiss. Tomorrow’s payday and I’m ordering. Hate that Evan – my delay, my loss.
