The Courteous Curator

Leave a comment

A poem by Debbie Loesel Stanton:




A curator I am —

No, not a curator in a museum

but in my heart, that of an editor


I am launching a new magazine

(an online one, to be exact)

I will draw from near and far

from my community of friends


What exactly will I be drawing, gathering?

What will I curate and edit?

What will bring this writer’s heart joy?


What YOU like, whether

poems, stories, letters to the editor

recipes, questions for my advice columnist

photos, prayers, devotionals

humor, kindness, love

camaraderie, fellowship, community

book reviews, health tips

positivity and not morbidity


And why will this curator be courteous?

I won’t be laughing at the submissions that come my way

I am an “equal opportunity editor”

We need to stick together

and I am searching for things that will bring you joy


I don’t put people down

and I like to build them up

That is why I will be

the courteous curator

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
