Three of the books on my shelf today are:

The Psalms: With Commentary by Kathleen Norris. Riverhead Books, New York, November 1997. Commentary copyright 1997 by Kathleen Norris. I am referring to this book, which reprints from the King James Version of the Bible, for my series at Poems From Psalms And Nature. I read different translations of the Bible, old and new.

Some Glad Morning: Poems by Barbara Crooker. Pitt Poetry Series. University of Pittsburgh Press, Pittsburgh, PA. Copyright 2019 by Barbara Crooker. Please visit her site for more information. I own and have read many of Barbara’s books.

The Heron’s Nest Volume 21 2019. This is an annual print edition. John Stevenson is Managing Editor. Please visit The Heron’s Nest for more information. The March 2020 online issue of this English-language haiku journal is also there.

The Heron’s Nest – March 2019

The new issue of The Heron’s Nest is online. “where tradition and innovation meet and complement each other”

John Stevenson is Managing Editor of this haiku journal. I have been reading there for some time. Please see How to Submit for more information, and the names of the Associate Editors. Guidelines among journals vary, so be sure to read and follow each journal’s rules, if you wish to offer work for review. First step is to read!

I enjoy reading print books/journals too, and like The Heron’s Nest Annual Editions. I am still reading Volume 19 for 2017, and placed an advance order for the new edition for 2018.
