jubilat / Jones Poetry Series
Following is an announcement from Dara Wier, regarding the cessation of the publication of the jubilat literary journal, as well as the corresponding readings at the Jones Library. jubilat's final issue will be spring 2021, which will be the 20th anniversary of the journal. The Jones/jubilat readings ceased with the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
To the Friends of the Jones Library who have kept this series alive and well, thriving and significantly understood nationally, regionally and locally as a premiere venue for all poets to come to with their poems, mostly new ones, and find a poetry-loving audience ready to listen, we send profoundly grateful thanks for inviting the Jones/jubilat series to come into being and for sustaining it over many many years; your generosity and faithfulness inspired the series from beginning to end.
The series began with the library's Bonnie Isman's assistance and guidance, and we thank her for her interest, inspiration and good will.
jubilat and jubilat's many editors and contributors, subscribers and friends send our appreciation, highest regards, and good wishes. It's been a great many years' experience.
and editors Caryl Pagel, Emily Pettit, and Dara Wier
