Online Literary Journals I edit:

Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry

(read a review of Poemeleon at The Review Review.)

Inlandia: A Literary Journal

 

I also was an associate editor for Babel Fruit, founded by Ren Powell and which began as project of ICORN (International Cities of Refuge Network) an organization devoted to supporting freedom of expression and those in peril.

Additionally, I was an associate for ProtestPoems.org.

Sadly, neither of these journals are currently in operation.
