As co-editors we are pleased to present the IFPE and larger psychoanalytic community with the second issue of our on-line journal Other/Wise.
This first full issue has been under construction for almost a year so we are thankful for the patience extended to us as we selected papers, presentations and performances from last year’s exciting conference in Boston. To this central grouping we have added film and play reviews, poetry, author and editorial commentary and dialogue that we believe reflects the IFPE spirit.
Our intent, in keeping with the guiding principles that lead to the formation of Other/Wise, is to be inclusive, diverse and creative. What other journal, for example, includes original art work and musical recordings? Then again what other psychoanalytic organization would welcome and continue to welcome such freedom of expression in form and theory?
We hope you enjoy what Other/Wise reveals about IFPE. We welcome your comments in the “response place” we have included.
See you in Seattle and on-line in future editions of Other/Wise.

During an extended exchange of poems and responses among the IFPE members who discovered their poetic affinity with each other, one of the poets addressed the others as “Dear Poetry Posse.” And in future emails, the name seems to have stuck. We are including a few poems from some of the “Posse”. Enjoy!
