The Font of Language

The literary journal The Font is specifically for language teachers. It began in Japan, and for awhile many of its contributors had some kind of relationship to Japan. Happily, the word has gotten out and the journal is now publishing writers from all over the globe. I'm pleased to have a poem in their most recent issue with the well-chosen theme of Boundaries.

If you have any work that might be appropriate for this journal, here are the submissions guidelines. They do accept reprints, as long as they match the themes and aims of the journal.
