Happy reading! Happy summer!

We're delighted to have a couple of returning poets in this issue. It's always great to see new work from past contributors. We're also featuring the work of some of our favorite visual artists, as well as debuting 3 new artists, Jackie Papanier, K. Lee Mock, and Kara Dorris.

Recently, your trusty co-editors, Dara-Lyn Shrager and Rachel Marie Patterson, spent a week at an undisclosed location in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania on a top-secret poetry retreat. During that time, our tireless submitters maxed out our Submittable account, and we cemented some exciting plans for the next year of Radar. Be sure to check us out on Facebook for news.

Meanwhile, don't forget to submit to the 2017 Coniston Prize! This year's judge is the bejeweled and beguiling Dorothea Lasky. Learn more here.
