About CRISIS: Deriving from the Greek “krisis,” meaning “decision” but also a “decisive moment,” the word “crisis” has come to apply to moments and situations of danger, stress and uncertainty. Crises can be unpredictable, and how we deal with a crisis can test the limits of our endurance and capacity for survival. A crisis can expose our weaknesses, but we can also emerge stronger, more durable from the experience. We hope to learn from a crisis, so we do not repeat it. We are not always successful. The poems and nonfiction/hybrid selections that we will gather under the subject of crisis will engage crisis in its broadest meaning. We welcome in particular pieces that address contemporary crises—from the political and environmental—and rethink the ways in which poetry engages and responds to crisis in real time.
