Yes, we planned it this way. Tahoma Literary Review’s third issue (Vol. 2, No. 1) is now live, released to coincide with the annual AWP Conference in Minneapolis on April 9-11. As always, the issue is available in a print edition and Kindle on Amazon, and in free downloadable pdf and epub editions on our site.
We’re thrilled to introduce the writers in this issue and their outstanding work: included are poets Tara Skurtu, Michael Lauchlan, and Nickole Brown; also short story masters Stefanie Freele, Lynda Sexson, John Brantingham, and Lilliam Rivera. Nonfiction gets its due attention from essayists Shane Pekny and Laura Kendall. Our cover art is by southern California artist Wendy Smith.
Be sure to visit Soundcloud for exclusive audio of this issue, read by our talented contributors.
Speaking of AWP, if you’re among the 14,000 or so expected attendees, please come visit us at Booth 403. We’ll have a slew of author signings, plenty of books, a kickass banner, some really, really great buttons displaying a little of our literary philosophy, and in the tradition of shameless marketers everywhere…much more! Yes, truly. (Rumor has it we’ll be offering discounted submissions for AWP attendees, so don’t miss us.)
