Editors’ Cadralore

Editors’ Cadralore


To our fellow poets and cadralor enthusiasts, welcome to Gleam. We hope you are inspired to try your hand at this new form, and because it is so new, we will post links to cadralore of our own, poems we have published in other journals, in each issue. Our intent is to offer you cadralore that both we at Gleam and editors of other poetry journals have found to be highly successful in embodying this form, and we hope that reading them will help you get a deeper, richer sense of what cadralore are, what they do, and what makes a cadralor a cadralor.  Included in Issue 3 are cadralore from current editors, Lauren Scharhag, “Baby’s Breath,” and Lori Howe, “Refraction,” “Ripening,” and “Electromagnetism and Other Holy Waves, for Michael Faraday,”  and from past editors, Scott Ferry, “eel,” and “ichor / eschar” and Jon Yungkans, “Us,” and “Cadralor for Rachael.” Thanks for reading. We hope to see submissions of your own fine cadralore for Issue 4 when we open the call for submissions in early January, 2022.
