Tahoma Literary Review’s Issue 2 is live! We’re excited to offer some of the best poetry and fiction around, as well as original cover art by Seattle artist Camille Patha.* This issue also marks the debut of our nonfiction essay and flash offerings.
As before, TLR’s editors have created a collection of work by both established and emerging writers. Among this issue’s contributors are poets Martha Silano, Lesley Wheeler, and Jennifer Givhan, whose crown of sonnets marks our first venture into long-form poetry. Fiction includes wonderful and traditional stories by Jenn Stroud Rossmann, and Jaimee Wriston Colbert, plus some boundary-pushing work by Dan Kennard and Kayla Miller. In Nonfiction, look for an insider’s report from Afghanistan by Frank Light, and T.K. Dalton’s gripping account of translating for a deaf child, among others.
We’re proud of this issue, but prouder still that so many—both writers and readers—have chosen to support our efforts to provide compensation for literary works.
Issue 2 is ready for purchase or free download on our Current Issue page.
Happy New Year and happy reading!
*Ms. Patha is scheduled to be honored by Secretary of State John Kerry in a Washington D.C. ceremony in 2015.
