With the publication of issue #25, Spillway bade farewell to Susan Terris, who served as editor for ten years. Under her visionary tenure, Spillway reached Clifford Garstang’s top twenty among American literary magazines publishing poetry.

Susan Terris’s book, The Ghost of Yesterday: New & Selected Poems was published in 2013 by Marsh Hawk Press. Her chapbook, Memos, was published by Omnidawn in early 2015. Ms. Terris is the author of six full-length books of poetry, fourteen chapbooks, and three artists’ books. Her journal publications include The Southern Review, FIELD, Denver Quarterly, and Ploughshares. One of her poems from FIELD published in Pushcart Prize XXXI, and another, from Memos, “Memo to the Former Child Prodigy,” which appeared in The Denver Quarterly, was selected by Sherman Alexie for Best American Poetry 2015.

The staff of Spillway are grateful for her outstanding contribution and wish her a bright future.
