...LOCUSPOINT is devoted to cronyism. I ask editors to publish their friends, their lovers, their friends' lovers, their brothers, their mothers, their enemies, and their frenemies. Editorial objectivity does not exist here—at least, not in the way it does elsewhere. These editors still select the best work: they just select work by people within their community. I think that's important to note.
ha haha ha haha...
I want to tear into Mr. Jensen's note, but I won't this time. Why? Because I respect Sarah Vap (guest editor of the Washington edition) so much as a poet. If she thinks a poem is good, I will read it. Though I'm surprised she included her own work in the issue. Editors should never include their own work in the anthology/ journal being edited.
