Editorial Focus

There are many poems asking to be read, but rarely are readers given a reason why we should be reading them. Triggerfish is a journal dedicated to the "why" of poetry, seeking to understand and illuminate this process, to say that it is possible to make qualitative judgments and distinctions about the substance of poetry. We hope to provide insight into the discerning reader's viewpoint. The intention isn't to demonstrate the worth of these poems--the gray area of sensibility and taste--but to talk about why we read them and why we want you to read them.
