The 14th issue of Tokyo Poetry Journal, one of the capital’s most diverse and welcoming publishers, is coming out in December with a launch party and a poetry reading. The Eros issue focuses on eroticism in poetry. “Much of this volume may titillate. However, at its heart, the works herein represent a kaleidoscope of the human sexual experience in the early 21st century,” writes lead volume editor Joy Waller.

At the launch, there will be poetry readings by some of the poets published in the volume, music performances and live painting by Jes Kalled.
