An equinox is equidistant,
poised on the edge
of one thing or another,
balanced on the cusp
of change or transformation.

 biannual, digital, multimedia journal

hotpoet has launched Equinox, a biannual digital multimedia journal that showcases poets, writers, and artists. While solstices are the extremes of the year, an equinox is equidistant, poised on the edge of one thing or another, the cusp of change or transformation. With this archetypal significance in mind, Equinox strives to explore the contemplative and motivational power of writers and artists; to celebrate how word and image
can create a world and then change it.
