Enskyment Â? where a classic poet achieves heavenly enshrinement. Innisfree Â? where Yeats found peace. Cook Communication announces launch September 6: http://www.enskyment.org and http://www.innisfreepoetry.org

Enskyment – where a classic poet achieves heavenly enshrinement. Innisfree – where Yeats found peace.

These are the names of two new online poetry journals now afloat on the web's binary sea. They can be spotted at http://www.enskyment.org and http://www.innisfreepoetry.org

Cook Communication, best known for publishing AuthorMe.com, adds these to its group as of September 6, 2005.

The term "enskyment" is derived from poet Robinson Jeffers: "to share those wings and those eyes--What a sublime end of one's body, what an enskyment; what a life after death."

The name "Innisfree" refers to the lake where poet William Yeats sought refuge in Sligo County, Ireland.

Enskyment.org, edited by Dan Masterson, contains exceptional poems that have appeared in print or online journals. Since publication rights return to poets on publication, they are free to allow reprints of their work. Masterson's books include All Things Seen and Unseen, On Earth as it Is, and Those who Trespass.

The Innisfree Poetry Journal, edited by Greg McBride, places poems by widely published poets shoulder to shoulder with those of new and lesser-known poets. Its inaugural issue presents new poems from 54 contemporary poets. McBride's poems and essays appear in 32 Poems, Connecticut Review, Folio, The Gettysburg Review, Poet Lore, and elsewhere.
