Congratulations to Our New Associate Editor!
We are extremely excited to announce that Jeni De La O will be our new Associate Editor !
A note from I.S. Jones, Frontier’s Editor in Chief:
Please give a warm welcome to Frontier’s Associate Editor, Jeni De La O. I’m impressed by her unique experiences and transferrable skills, but I am even more impressed by her mission to uplift and celebrate voices that have been historically pushed to the margins. It is a profound delight to work with someone as golden-hearted and community-mind as Jeni. She exemplifies so much of what it means to be a good literary citizen. I’m excited to work with her and grow this incredible magazine together.
A note from Jeni, the new Associate Editor
I am humbled and excited to join the Frontier Poetry team as an Associate Editor. Following in the footsteps of Jose Hernandez Diaz, Bailey Cohen, Felicity Sheehy, Yania Padilla and so many others, my sincerest hope is to continue providing a community of opportunities for emerging writers from all walks of life and every corner of the globe.
The editorial team at Frontier values potential over pedigree. We champion the fullness of what contemporary literature has to offer and challenge the notion that creativity has borders. We are writers, we are readers, we are a community: and I cannot wait to watch us grow.
