About Lily:
Lily's Editors: Susan Graybeal & Indigo Moor

Mission

Lily was created in late 2003 by Susan Culver as a way to share the beauty of poetry, fiction and photography in a free and easily accessible way. Over the next four years, Lily was published monthly online - offering the creative work of newcomers and veterans alike.

In those four years, Lily published interviews with, and work by, writers such as Pushcart Prize winner, Beth Ann Fennelly; National Book Award nominee, Alicia Ostriker; Pulitzer Prize poets, Paul Muldoon and Claudia Emerson; and former U.S. Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser. Conversely, Lily has also been the first publication credit for a number of emerging poets and writers.

After a three and a half year hiatus, Lily has returned with a renewed energy and the hope of once again sharing the beauty of words and images.

Lily's editorial staff believes that art can originate anywhere and responds favorably to quality writing that shows us the world in a new way. We are moved by photography that captures the unconventional angle or recognizes everyday moments that shouldn't be overlooked.
