As we prepare to resume our third volume of Radius, it’s a good time to note that there are a few new names on the masthead, and a few old  names in new positions.

After lengthy terms as Poetry Editors, Tara Betts and Heather Sommer will be stepping into the roles of Contributing Editors, where they’ll be joined by newcomer Lauren Gordon.

Tara and Heather have some mighty big shoes to fill, but I think I speak for everyone when I say our new editors are up to the task. So please join me in welcoming longtime Radius contributors Sam Cha and Rachel McKibbens as our new Poetry Editors. I’m terribly excited to see what they bring to the table.

Lastly, Radius is in the process of adding a few new Contributing Writers and Reviewers to the team. So if you’re interested, please drop us a line backchannel at  That being said, we can announce that Tatyana Brown, whose work has graced our pages a couple times, has joined us as a regular contributor, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing more from her.

Lots of changes, but the mission remains the same: Poetry, how it works, how it lives in the world, and how one poem connects to another.

Time to start again …
