Acceptance: The Toucan

The Toucan is a wonderful upstart journal whose editors possess vivacious cadence and scintillant energy. In a recent issue, they published many of the ‘great regulars,’ those luminary bards who wander about the internet with their stashes of hard-written poems, looking for worthy journals:

The Toucan Winter Issue

If several of these regulars (to name a few off the top of my head: Lyn Lyfshin, Howie Good, Christine Ong Muslim, Michael Lee Johnson ... there are many more) appear on a site, it’s like a signet of approval from the Demigods of Literature. And, yes, The Toucan has received this unofficial and implicit stamp.

Hooray for the bird with the big colorful nose! And also for this happy Owl, who was informed that one of his scribblings would become “Poem of the Week” at some time TBA; and that another of his scribblings would appear in the May issue of The Toucan.
