We are delighted that In Posse has been listed in Top 5 Web Sites by Suite101.com.

Please pass on comments on the poetry section of In Posse to Ilya Kaminsky.

After only a few years of circulation, In Posse Review has become the one of the most important literary publications on the world wide web. We offer an amazingly diverse selection of poetry, prose, creative non-fiction and literary criticism. Professor Sean Thomas Dougherty of the English Department of Penn University wrote to us: "I love your journal...so much fine work, so many fine poems and poets I didn't know and probably wouldn't if not for the presense of your journal--I've read every issue and wanted to thank you for the work you do, and its continued presence in helping to bring such fine poems to the world."

In Posse Review is constantly expanding. Our Multi-Ethnic Anthology was the subject of a special coverage on KKUP 91.5 FM, a widely popular "people's radio" in the Bay Area. If you are a teacher and would like to inquire about adopting poems or prose from the Multi-Ethnic Anthology for your classroom curriculum, please write to our chief editor, Rachel Callaghan for details.

We are honored to have Garth Greenwell as guest editor for this issue of In Posse Review. Garth is a University Fellow in the MFA program at Washington University in St. Louis. His poems have recently appeared or are forthcoming in The Beloit Poetry Journal, The Comstock Review, and InPosse Review, and were awarded the 2000 Grolier Poetry Prize and the 2001 Rella Lossy Poetry Award. His chapbook, Crossing, is forthcoming from San Francisco State University Press.

The next issue of Posse Review will have a special section dedicated to the memory of American Poet Anthony Piccione, who served as an unofficial advisor to In Posse for a number of years. The section will include poetry and non-fiction prose.

Also, In Posse Review, along with United Poets Coalition and Small Spiral Notebook, will co-sponsor The Anthony Piccione Memorial Award, given annually to a younger poet. The 2002 Award Includes a publication of online poetry chapbook edition by www.smallspiralnotebook.com, a publication of one poem in In Posse Review, and one of the last signed copies of Anthony Piccione's book of poems, For The Kingdom, as well as a small collection of signed books by other nationally acclaimed authors who support this Award.

The Judges for the 2002 Award will include: Thom Ward (author of two books of poems and Editor at BOA Editions), Katherine Towler (award winning novelist and poet), Andrena Zawinski (award winning poet and Features Editor of Poetry Magazine), Erin Elizabeth (Editor of Stirring: A Literary Collection), and Colleen Royr (Publisher and Editor of Andirondack Review).
