I think your journal is serving an absolutely vital need. As a poet myself, I have been told many times that “there is nothing like [what you write] out there.” I also know, having trolled the internet numerous times, that there is plenty out there, although much of what’s online isn’t “literary” poetry. So to see your journal offering work that speaks to the autism experience (whether from the point of view of parent, teacher, or writer on the spectrum) while not sacrificing literary quality — well, that just rocks. I am truly grateful to see your journal out there, it will benefit the autism community and the literary community.
