Thank you again to all poets and artists who contributed to this September 2016
edition of cattails. We will not be individually listing
contributors names due to the large volume of works we publish
You will notice that cattails
is a unique publication insofar as we do not use a standard page number style
Over many years in the publishing business, and by following the statistics of our
individual page counters, we have determined that most readers go directly to the poets
index, then read their own work. By doing so, they frequently by-pass the works of
the other poets and artists.
We realize that this is human-nature, but, in
cattails, we would like to encourage contributors
to read everyone's work, not just their own. We believe this is how we expose
ourselves to unfamiliar forms, while honing the skills that engage us, while at the
same time making new acquaintances.
