Paintings by Eric Armusik (L) and Richard Samuel (R)The Society of Classical Poets Releases Journal VIII The Society June 12, 2020 From the Society, Poetry 5 Comments The Society of Classical Poets website receives millions of views every year. Visitors read engaging, beautiful, topical verse that enlivens Western Civilization’s great conversation. That conversation continues in Journal VIII (drawn from poetry published on our website between February 1, 2019 and January 31, 2020). It’s a conversation we hope you will join. The Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, based in Mount Hope, New York, dedicated to the continuation of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and excellent poetry.

I appreciate everything The Society stands for and I am honored to be a member and even more honored to have my words recognized in the pages of this book. Thank you to Evan and everyone here for their support, appreciation, encouragement and inspiration. You have taken my writing to new levels. Reply rohini sunderam June 14, 2020 I am delighted to have my poetry featured for the second successive year. Thank you Evan and the team that continues to hold us to our best possible work. Reply John Weerden June 24, 2020 Perhaps you could consider posting the journal to orders from Australia. Reply The Society June 24, 2020 Dear John Weerden, According to Amazon Australia, you should in theory be able to buy it there: https://www.amazon.com.au/Society-Classical-Poets-Journal-VIII/dp/1949398331/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=Evan+Mantyk&qid=1593043391&sr=8-5 Let me know if it works. Regards, Evan Mantyk Reply Jan Darling June 24, 2020 Hello Evan and John Thank you John, for asking such a timely question. The last time I checked it was not available through Amazon Australia – so instead of retreating into my den, grumbling, I was delighted to see your question and Evan’s answer. I have just ordered my copy. Thank you, my serendipitous friends.
