I recently read an NEA study that shows only 8.3% of Americans read “some poetry”. With this in mind I started a poetry feature on my site each week which shares short video poetry readings.
This week’s Pause for Poetry focuses on the San Pedro River Review, a new poetry and art journal just launched in 2009 by Blue Horse Press in Tucson, Arizona.
Edited and published by Jeffrey C. Alfier and Tobi R. Cogswell, the San Pedro River Review is published twice a year with Spring and Fall issues for only $6 each.
The inaugural Spring Issue features 3 artists and an impressive range of 28 new and established poets, including WD Ehrhart, Barry Spacks, and Wanda VanHoy Smith, three contributors whose work really stood out to me.
Watch videos of these three poets in action.
