A few months ago Canopic editors Phil Rice and Virginia Smith Rice visited poet Gene Kimmet at his home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Before heading out for dinner at a restaurant overlooking the lake, Gene read selections from his collection Recollections of My Father (Canopic 2015). The reading was captured on video and the video has been edited to allow for clips to be matched with individual poems on Gene’s author page. The first such posting is the marvelous “Letter to Miss McClurg.”
And we are also pleased to announce that Virginia is currently at work compiling a new collection of Gene’s work. We’ll keep you posted on the publication date.

The first of many new additions to Canopic Jar and Canopic Publishing for 2018 officially makes its debut with the posting of The Canopic Jar video series. The first offering features Lindsey Fisher’s video presentation of Virginia Smith Rice reading her poem “The Time I Hold Back.” This is just the start of an open-ended project that will feature the work of a wide array of artists in multiple medias, including readings, music, videos, and performance art.
Canopic Jar is an arts journal dedicated to the simple idea of keeping the creative energy flowing in and out. The first Jar appeared in 1986 as a tiny print mag of drawings and poems. Since that modest beginning in print, there have been live shows, a studio recording, an old-fashion VHS movie, and a softcover book—among other ventures. In 1999 the first online Jar was posted. We have since sought to carve our own little digital niche while continuing to nourish and pursue physical expressions as they are presented. Our goal is to, above all else, lead with the art.
Currently our primary online forums are the Featured Voices and the Suites. The Featured Voices are artists showcased by a selection of writings, visual art, audio, or any other genre that applies. The artists are selected by the Canopic Jar editors, but we gladly accept suggestions.
The Canopic Jar Suites are theme-based collections of poetry and other artistic renderings. The themes are open to liberal and organic interpretation — wherever the artist takes them or they take the artist. We post contributions as they are accepted by the editors, so the suites are built gradually and shared as they are progressing.
Suite submission guidelines: Please send submissions or inquiries to email@example.com with “Canopic Jar Suite” in the subject line. Writing can be within the email or in an attachment (Word doc preferred). If you have any questions, please send us a note.
