Letter From The Publisher by LeRoy Chatfield

Letter From The Publisher

Welcome to Syndic No.4.

In the 1960s, Halina Poswiatowska – Polish poet and graduate of Smith College – was known as the “poet of love”. As life would have it, she passed away in 1967 at the age of 32 years.

The original Syndic Literary Journal, founded 1958 in San Francisco, passed away after its fifth issue – March 1960. Fifty years later, Syndic was resurrected as an online multimedia literary journal designed to showcase the work of talented authors/artists both at home and abroad.

I dedicate Syndic No. 4 to the “poet of love,” Halina Poswiatowska, in the hope her poetry will be rediscovered – resurrected, if you will – and enjoyed online by a new worldwide audience.

I wish to thank Dariusz Pacak – poet and irrepressible world traveler – for introducing me to Halina’s poetry and for serving as Syndic’s international ambassador-at-large. Because of Dariusz, Syndic No.4 showcases the work of authors/artists from Poland, Germany, Taiwan, India, Japan and Austria.
