Shortly after the announcement that toto was going on hiatus, Nancy Anne Miller contacted me to find out whether we would be interested in having a special feature of the journal that highlighted the work of Bermudian poets. I jumped at the proposal. We have always wanted to feature guest editors, and here was Nancy, offering to be one!
She’s worked hard all summer, collecting poetry and art from Bermuda, and we’re pleased to launch this Sunday. Here’s what you might want to know about Nancy:

Her poems have appeared in Edinburgh Review (UK), Agenda (UK),The International Literary Quarterly (UK), Stand (UK), Magma (UK), Journal of Postcolonial Writing (UK), Mslexia (UK), The Moth (IE), A New Ulster (IE), The Fiddlehead (CA), The Dalhousie Review (CA), Transnational Literatures (AU), Postcolonial Text (CA), The Caribbean Writer (VI) tongues of the ocean (BS), Sargasso: Journal of Caribbean Literature (PR), Journal of Caribbean Literatures (USA), Hampton Sydney Poetry Review (USA), and Theodate (USA).

Nancy, thank you for editing this issue, for your wonderful poem, “Approaching Bermuda,” and for your thoughtful words about Bermudian poetry. Your approach to your poems is always an expanding one, images opening out into unexpected paths and transformations.
