From Our Editors

Recognized as a leading poet and activist, Todd Swift has garnered a reputation for pushing the boundaries of the genre and fusing it with film, radio, TV, CD, theatre and other non-traditional avenues for a poet. Finding time between editing the highly acclaimed anthologies Poetry Nation: The North American Anthology of Fusion Poets and Mapmakers’ Colours: New Poets of Northern Ireland, Swift presents Budavox, a collection of his own verse that vividly illustrates the validity of his reputation as one of the boldest and most insightful poets to appear in the last decade.
