My friend Sandy Benitez, editor of Flutter Poetry Press and Poppy Road Review, has started a new journal — Night Garden Journal — that will take the place of Black Poppy Review. Here’s what the “About” page says:
“Night Garden Journal is a literary arts journal featuring free verse poetry, flash fiction, and mini-chapbook collections (chaplets), of a darker nature. All is not as it seems in the Night Garden. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Find the key. Unlock the creaky gate on rusted hinges. Explore the dilapidated, mossy grounds. Discover hidden paths and nooks which lead to words that linger and haunt—poems of abandonment, discovery, enchantment, flora & fauna, ghosts, isolation, memories, nature, weathering, wonder, and the otherwise forgotten.
* We are partial to poems about ancient gardens, abandoned manors, and dark forests.”
Come on over and join the fun of ghostly poetry!

It looks great and its preferences are intriguing!
I don’t write a lot of dark poetry, but it’s a great site for those who do, and Sandy is a joy to work with.

it sounds wonderful as a place for a love of darkness, what was, and what remains –
I don’t think in poems like that very often, but she has taken a couple of mine that bordered on the eerie. Not nearly like the really good ones on her site though.
