Categories: Poetry, Poetry Submission Guidelines

Dear Poets,

Our Poetry Editor, Irene Willis,  would like to let you know that you can have three previously published poems unpublished in the monthly Poetry Monday section of this website. Please include a cover letter with all your contact information, a brief bio and a list of your publications. We are looking for unpublished poems of high quality. Occasionally, we will ask permission to use poems that have already been published, for which we need complete, accurate citations. If poems are accepted, we will contact the poet by e-mail and ask for the accepted poems to be sent in a single file as an e-mail attachment. We ask also that
International Psychoanalysis (www.internationalpsychoanalysis.net) be acknowledged for any of the poems we use.

Dear Colleagues,

Still in the summer mode, the world continues to have it’s interesting news items, ranging from a jury sentencing a man to life imprisonment for killing 9 people, to police officers being arrested and uproar over debates and upcoming presidential primaries in the USA.

For some weeks in August, there has been a discussion of the banality of evil, Hannah Arendt, and Eichmann.

I have tried to follow these discussions with interest and some difficulty but one question rises to the surface.
