Montserrat Review, one of the most prestigious literary journals in America, published 'Best Reading' each spring and fall in which the Book Review Editor Grace Cavalieri presents her recommends for the best reading in a variety of categories. With fifty thousand literary journals publishing in North America, it is no small task to cull the best reading. The Best Reading for Fall 2009 honors six journals, including Atlas Poetica : A Journal of Poetry of Place in Modern English Tanka 3. ATPO is edited by M. Kei and features tanka, tanka prose, tanka sequences, and related non-fiction, such as international resources and book reviews.
Atlas Poetica is edited by M. Kei and beginning in 2010 is moving to a three times a year publication from its original twice a year schedule. 8.5" x 11" with full color covers drawn from the "Earth as Art" series sponsored by NASA and USGS, it publishes tanka poetry from around the world in English and other languages.
Grace Cavalieri is the host of the 'Poem and Poet' program at the Library of Congress, as well as having published fourteen books of poetry of her own. She has been honored with the Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting Silver Medal, and many others.
