I’ve been excitedly waiting for the inaugural issue of Delta Poetry Review to be released, and the day is finally at hand. DPR is a new online journal edited by Dixon Hearne. They are most interested in poetry from and about the American delta region and the Deep South generally, but they’re open to all work written in English from anywhere.
Mr. Hearne and DPR were kind include to include three of my poems in this issue. “South Through Kentucky” describes driving through parts of the state where my dad grew up and where our family has extended roots. “We are Called to Invent Ourselves” was inspired from a walk in the woods near by house. And “2:00 a.m. at Three Crow Bar” is an homage to one of my best friends, set in a great Nashville bar that you should check out.
This first issue of DPR also includes work from Stephen Hundley, a poet whose work is popping up everywhere. I predict you’ll continue to see his writing a lot in the future. So get to know him now.
Delta Poetry Review is scheduled to publish their next issue in June. So now is a great time for writers to submit new work.
