Bars, diners and dives: poetry from the San Pedro River Review

San Pedro River Review Spring 2010 Poetry edited by Alfier and CogswellAs April and National Poetry Month come to an end today, the LA Books Examiner urges you to continue making poetry a part of your daily lives by watching videos, going to readings and, most importantly, buying poetry books and subscribing to poetry journals.

That’s why this week’s special Pause for Poetry focuses on the San Pedro River Review, a small poetry and art journal 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 2010 Spring Issue is called Bars, Diners & Dives, and features the work of 2 artists and an impressive range of 48 new and established poets, including Ellaraine Lockie and Larry D. Thomas, two contributors whose work really stood out this time to the LA Books Examiner.

With this in mind, let’s all hit the Pause button on our lives for a few minutes and check out these poets in action.
