The "New" Poetry Northwest
The inaugural issue of the "new" Poetry Northwest came in the mail Saturday, and what a delight! The new Poetry Northwest is gorgeous and fantastic. I love the beautiful cover photograph by Jock Sturges, and the large 8 1/2 x 11 format, which allows space for the poems to breathe. There is a terrific suite of new work from Richard Kenny, a lovely poem by our own Eduardo Corral, and a very thoughtful essay about reviewing poetry by Peter Campion, among other things. Kudos to David Biespiel and company. Hopefully this incarnation of the journal will have a long and happy life.
