My poem “When Considering My Father’s Suicide” appears in Volume Two, Issue Two of Meniscus, a free online journal published by Australasian Association of Writing Programs. The entire archives of the journal are available to access for free from the website.
With editors and advisory board members in several different countries, Meniscus publishes poetry, fiction and creative essays as well as translations into English. It is named for the curve that forms at the top surface of a container of liquid. An explanation as to why the name suits the journal can be found here.
