Mission Statement:

Here seeks to present in each annual issue diverse, wide-ranging, and powerful responses in poetry to the essential and endless questions related to “being here” that are implied by the journal’s title. What does it mean to be here, truly, or to have been here, back from “there,” against whatever odds and forces? The journal is open to work written in all forms and encourages those writing from the margins, whatever those may be, to submit their work.

Along with the questions the title raises, we hope, too, that a generosity of spirit emanates from the journal and the poems within it. Here, the title says to you, take this. May it be a good companion for you over a cup of coffee or two, on a road trip, and perhaps far beyond that.
