Sin Fronteras/Writers Without Borders Issue #23 has just arrived from the printer. (See its photo to the right.) It features the work of 48 contributors, mostly poets. Six are from southern New Mexico, seven from other parts of the state, a few more from the greater southwest. Others are from all over the country, from Washington State to Massachusetts to Florida, and three live beyond our nation’s borders.
Some poems speak directly to southern border issues. Others focus on different kinds of borders: between people, their communication and miscommunication, or between people and wildlife, or people and their pasts. The editors were pleased to have a rich mix to draw from.
The cover art is by Deret Roberts, local artist and gallery owner. You can learn more about his gallery at www.artobscuragallery,com.
