Sin Fronteras/Writers Without Borders #22 is out. We know it seems a long wait to our contributors, but our all-volunteer crew is pleased to be ahead of last year’s schedule.
Our cover artist for this issue is local artist and poet, Katie McLane, a regular at our readings.
The forty contributors include former editors Michelle Holland, Dick Thomas and Joe Somoza, but the writers come from all over the country, and one from Mexico. Regular readers will find a mix of familiar names and new ones.
We have a number of bi-lingual poems and one poem presented complete in both English and Spanish.
Poems about rivers, mountains and desert are included, as are poems about family and about loneliness. There are poems commenting on our own southern border, but also poems about September 11 and current troubles in the Middle East.
