Seen on Latinteach (please send any responses to the folks mentioned in the quoted text, not to rogueclassicism!):
My name is Mark Walker and I am currently in the early stages of setting up a new journal, provisionally titled VATES: The Journal of New Latin Poetry, the purpose of which is to promote both the reading and the writing of new Latin verse. My hope is that by providing a forum for the publication of newly written Latin verse this journal will encourage people — everyone from Classics professors to Latin novices — to think about picking up their pens and composing something in Latin.
So if you or anyone you know ever wanted to write Latin poetry, now is your chance. VATES is being set up to give Latin poets from all backgrounds and all levels of experience an opportunity to show off their work, discuss it with other likeminded friends, and read about the work of others in the field.
