Syndic Narrations 

~ The Art of the Spoken Word


Letter from the Publisher

“Practice What You Preach!”

For more than 12 years I have been preaching to Poets that narration is an essential element of  literary presentation and while in the early years there was some resistance, now it has become commonplace in Syndic Literary Journal – in fact, I will not publish poetry without narration. 

Well, why not require that stories also be narrated? Good question! 

While it is not yet a requirement, you will notice that almost all stories in Syndic now include narration –  except mine, I am the proverbial outlier.

No more!  As publisher it is high time  I practice what I preach.
