Year 3. Thank You.

Dear MHR aficionados and aficionadesses, 

It’s been such a deep pleasure to do the work for MockingHeart Review. Just sublime. 153 poets. All worthy. All of the poems struck me as deeply meaningful and well-crafted.  It’s not just a one-woman operation. It’s a collaboration of our poet-contributors and readers, too.

MockingHeart Review loves you. Love us back with a donation, if you can, to help defray costs. We have a new LOVE BUTTON on the sidebar if you feel so inclined to show your appreciation to keep the flow going.  Like our Facebook page, too. 

Really, thank you for this, and for devoting yourselves to and supporting the vital work of poetry.

~Clare L. Martin
